"Two out of every five people on Earth today owe their lives to the higher crop outputs that fertilizer has made possible." - Bill Gates
As crop yields continue to get higher each year, it is important to have a good perspective on the effects of those yields on our soils. As those plants continue to produce more they also pull more and more nutrients from the soil creating a higher need for nutrients to be returned to the soil. Without returning key nutrients to the soil, the ground will eventually lose any ability to produce in the future.
One common way to apply nutrients to our soil is through the use of commercial fertilizer. By regular soil sampling and calculating how much nutrients a crop uses though out the year, we can construct an effective fertilizer program that will help you maximize yields as well as protect the environment.
In recent years nitrogen loss from urea has been an important topic of discussion for growers as they try to maximize efficiency and decrease the amount of leached nitrate in our soils. That's why we promote the use of nitrogen stabilizers - because by doing so we can get more of that nitrogen used by the plant and less of it in the ground. This allows the farmer to spread less urea to get the same amount of nitrogen used by the plant, and it helps us be better stewards of the environment.
