As the Director of Agronomy, Greg Schwab leads the team of agronomists at Koch Agronomic Services in helping growers understand options for nitrogen. Growers will recognize those products as AGROTAIN, AGROTAIN PLUS, and SUPERU, Schwab told me at the recent Trade Talk event at the National Association of Farm Broadcasting.
Koch’s products are specifically created to make the most of nitrogen investments, Schwab says. “They’re designed to help farmers utilize nitrogen. So they help prevent nitrogen loss and help keep more of the nitrogen in the soil where it belongs.”
It’s hard to wait for colder temperatures, Schwab knows, but farmers are doing the right thing and waiting to apply anhydrous till soil temps are cooler. The next important step to keep in mind for the 2017 growing season is to consider how products can help mitigate the risk of unknown weather conditions.
