    Nitrogen 101

    Nitrogen Fertilizer & Application

    • Dry/Granular by Broadcasting – Urea contains 46% nitrogen
    • Gas/Vapor by Banding - Anhydrous Ammonia contains 82% nitrogen
    • Liquid by Injection – UAN Solutions contain 28% or 32% nitrogen

    Ways We Lose Nitrogen

    • Denitrification – temperature, moisture and pH play a major roll.  If the soil is cold and saturated, active soil organisms take oxygen from the nitrate molecule, which converts it to Nitrous Oxide, Di-nitrous Oxide or pure nitrogen gas, becoming unusable.  These gases are released into the atmosphere, otherwise known as denitrification
      • Denitrification is most serious on soils that are poorly drained but can occur on any soil that is saturated with water
    • Volatilization or Urea Hydrolysis – a biological process that occurs when the urea molecule converts to ammonia gas and is released into the atmosphere
    • Leaching – the nitrate molecule is not held by the soil and will be carried by water.  This movement of nitrogen through the soil can deliver nitrates below the roots into the subsoil, otherwise known as leaching
      • Leaching is most serious on well-drained, sandy and gravelly soils but also can occur on well-drained upland limestone and shale soils

    Ways We Can Minimize Loss

    • Delaying part of the nitrogen application until corn is 10 to 16 inches tall (sidedressing) can minimize leaching and denitrification when corn needs it the most
      • Corn needs nitrogen at each stage of development, however, the most nitrogen is required prior to the grain fill period
    • Incorporating fertilizers that contain urea into the soil within 24 hours can minimize volatilization

    Example

    • Approximately 1 pound of nitrogen yields 1 bushel of corn
      • If the goal is 200 bushels of corn per acre, then 200 pounds of nitrogen per acre is needed
      • Ideally, 50 pounds applied at planting and 150 pounds at sidedressing (when the plant is between 10 and 16 inches tall and needs it most)
