BOZEMAN – With nitrogen fertilizer prices somewhat unsettled, Montana State University scientists caution dollars may be blowing away with the spring wind due to the phenomenon of volatilization loss. Recent research has shown some surprising results on how much nitrogen from broadcast urea is going into the air rather than to the crop.
In an effort to better serve its constituents, MSU would like to know if growers have been staying informed of the latest research. Clain Jones, Extension soil fertility specialist, and Rick Engel, associate professor, both in the Department of Land Resources and Environmental Sciences are asking those in the agriculture community to take a brief survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/7FNTZKL. If you would like to participate in this project but prefer a written copy survey, please contact Clain Jones at 406-994-6076 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
People completing the survey will be given an article about the findings on nitrogen fertilizer volatilization losses and management options.
