Before Old Man Winter officially hits, remember: It’s time to winterize your anhydrous ammonia application equipment.
Applying anhydrous ammonia in the fall is a great step to take if weather and time allow for it. This will save you time next spring so you can plant as soon as possible and will pave the way for maximum yield potential.
However, once the applications are complete, it’s necessary to take care of the equipment you used. By preparing your applicator to sit over the winter months, you’ll ensure it’s ready to use the next time it’s needed.
Winterizing anhydrous ammonia applicator equipment is incredibly important. Not only is the cold weather hard on machinery but the fertilizer is too. Anhydrous ammonia can be corrosive. Luckily, there are a few steps you can take each fall to keep your applicator in good working condition for years to come.
Old Man Winter can be hard on equipment. Make sure to stay one step ahead of him.
