Sure, it's late. But, it's not too late to apply nitrogen to your corn fields if they're showing major signs of deficiencies, says one expert.


Crop Talk: Late N applications

 

There's a lot of light green-tinted corn fields out there, and especially now that the soil's drying up in a lot of the areas that were the wettest this spring and early summer, nitrogen loss is becoming increasingly visible in a lot of fields. Earlier on, these symptoms could have been easily confused with another common wet year issue. But now, it's much easier to see where you're low on N, says University of Illinois Extension soil fertility specialist Fabian Fernandez.
