At this point, it looks like it will be a late spring. Corteva Agriscience market development specialist Jeff Moon, who is based at Sauk Rapids, Minnesota, says that will be an issue for fertilizer application. “A lot of fall work that we typically get done did not get done this fall; the retailers and farmers will both be pushing it to get that job done this spring.” Some fertilizer will need to be applied after the crop is planted. “I think we’ll see some split-applications and topdressing going down simply because they weren’t able to get it done before the crop went into the ground.” To protect the fertilizer investment, Moon recommends the use of nitrogen stabilizers like N-SERVE.
