Split nitrogen application

Peninsula Pride Farms recognizes that Nitrogen management crop fertility programs are a complex system.  A balance of the nitrogen application systems and crop performance in this area of the state is important. PPF offerings a cost share contract to members to manage Nitrogen by applying split applications of nitrogen to corn, cereal crops and winter wheat.  This means that participants will use two or more passes to apply the nitrogen needs of the crop. Nutrients like Nitrogen that is leachable or volatile can be better managed through more applications at lower rates to reduce potential losses to surface and/or groundwater.

One goal is to reduce Nitrogen usage by applying it two times into a growing crop rather than placing it out early in the spring.  Farmers should ultimately see an increase in yield, while reducing the potential for losses of Nitrogen in spring or summer.
