Decision Guide for Late Season N in HRSW

As prices for liquid UAN (28-0-0) have risen sharply the decision guide for late season N in HRSW had became outdated. The updated guide allows for N prices up to $1.00 per pound of actual N. This would equate to roughly $ 3.00 gallon for liquid UAN.

Some things to remember when you contemplating a late season application of N in HSRW are:
  • Apply up to 10 gpa of 28-0-0 with an equal amount of water - the water is needed to reduce leaf burn;
  • DO NOT apply during the heat of the day - early evening application reduce leaf burn considerably;
  • DO NOT tankmix this N with any fungicides at Feekes 10.51, but rather apply the additional N 2 to 5 days after anthesis;
  • The probability of a response by the crop is about 80%;
  • Only expect an increase of 0.5 to 1.0 full point in grain protein with the additional 30 lbs N/A;
  • All varieties respond equally well to the additional N;
