Get the Max Out of Urea and UAN Applications

Spring urea and UAN applications are getting underway. In this video, John Clefisch, Corteva Agriscience market development specialist, and Adam Millang, Brevant retail product agronomist, explain how to get the max out of your urea and UAN applications this spring.

Millang advises working with your customers on their nutrient management plans this spring, deciding how much nitrogen they need to apply and roughly when they should apply it. He says it’s important to remind your customers to stick to those plans even if the markets shift.

Millang says those plans should take into account the kinds of soil your customers are working with. Are their soils wet or sandy, or particularly wet and prone to loss? If so, recommending split nitrogen applications could be a good idea.

Millang and Clefisch both advise protecting any urea or UAN applications with Instinct NXTGEN® nitrogen stabilizer. The new formulation of Instinct® nitrogen stabilizer has a lower use rate and lower viscosity for better blending with urea and easier handling during spring applications.

Instinct NXTGEN works below-ground  ̶  where up to 70% of nitrogen loss occurs from leaching and denitrification  ̶  to extend nitrogen availability for up to eight weeks. Clefisch says the solution helps keep nitrogen in the root zone for when corn needs it most.

If you’re doing split applications for customers this season, be sure to keep an eye on MaxFacts for another video with reminders for successful sidedress applications.
