NDSU Extension Soil Scientist Dave Franzen reminds farmers to keep an eye on crops for signs of fertility problems. “In the areas with excessive rainfall, nitrogen and sulfur can move. There are some farmers that didn’t consider sulfur,” says Franzen. “They or consultants need to be looking at the crop making sure leaves aren’t yellow.” Franzen says small grains and corn will be the most susceptible to sulfur deficiency. “There was a lot of side dressing going on this last week, which is really good to see. People can continue to do that as long as fields are dry enough to do something.”
