  • With the dry conditions, is there anything growers need to be thinking about regarding nutrient availability or soil testing that might arise this fall if conditions stay dry? 
  • Is this a year that a soil nitrate test might be useful? 
  • Is there anything related to changes in the U of M fertilizer guidelines that growers should be aware of?
