Nitrogen Loss

Nitrogen loss can happen many different ways, with the recent wet weather we are going to focus on the ones that pertain to that.

 

Nitrate form is the most common nitrogen that will be lost due to wet weather. For instance, Urea will quickly turn into ammonium in the soil which does not leach easily, but it can be very soluble and move with water throughout the soil profile, putting it below the root zone.

 

Denitrification happens in fields where water tends to pond up. Soils depleted of oxygen because of saturation will experience loss of nitrogen because the soil microorganisms that convert nitrate to gas form will be lost due to no oxygen in that soil. This typically happens within 24 to 48 hours after saturation. Where water is ponding expect to lose up to 5% of applied nitrogen daily. 150#’s applied = 7 lbs daily.  So areas under water for 3 days could lose up to 20 pounds. 

 

A couple things to consider would be timing of the next application of nitrogen.

 

If you can side dress additional nitrogen in the form of 28% or top dress urea that may be a wise investment depending on when you can get back in the field. Corn will start using nitrogen more rapidly at V5 and onward so getting nitrogen on the field between now and V5 is crucial, especially if you already plan to split apply your nitrogen.

 

For fields that have all the nitrogen on up front or have fall nitrogen applications it may be a good idea to evaluate if additional nitrogen can benefit that field, based on how much was put on, the amount of rain, drainage and soil type.

 

 

Contact your local agronomist to discuss your field situation and see if utilizing in season nitrogen will benefit you!
