Minnesota’s corn crop could be at risk for nitrogen loss with the recent flooding. University of Minnesota Associate Professor Daniel Kaiser says farmers need to determine if their crop will have enough nitrogen to get through to the end of the season. “Should we be making changes to the nitrogen management if we’re getting closer to tasseling and if we haven’t been able to get out and get that second split on? Will it get to the crop when needed? It’s unknown at this point.” If there’s nitrogen that still needs to be applied, Kaiser tells farmers to go ahead with application.
