Sponsored: 1-Year Data Shows +4.3 Bu./A. Advantage of Sidedressing UAN 7.5 in. From the Row 

This first year study was designed to compare two different UAN sidedress spacings and how they affect yield and profitability.

With the nitrogen (N) loss experienced in Ohio in 2015, Beck's Practical Farm Research (PFR)®  team set out determine the economic differences in different sidedress spacings. The team at London, OH was not surprised to see a 4.3 Bu./A. yield advantage to sidedressing UAN 7.5 in. from the row as opposed to the control at the center of the row. Although it’s not a practice commonly utilized on farms, Beck's PFR team saw a yield advantage from simply applying the N closer to the plant, making it available for uptake sooner.
