Sound Agriculture Senior Vice President of Agronomy Jeff Divan says that impacts fertility. “We’ve had a lot of curve balls thrown our way, particularly with the hot and dry conditions,” said Divan. “When we through a lot of heat and dry conditions, we have the opportunity to volatilize a lot of the nitrogen.
