NH3 Application and Avoiding Corn Injury

With anhydrous ammonia application (NH3) in full swing this last week, we want to offer some tips on how to avoid corn injury as well as some options if you were unable to get any applied.

1. First and foremost, be safe! With the wet weather that lasted so long, you may find yourself getting in a hurry to go over all of the acres. This can cause accidents to happen and we don’t want that. Take your time making sure you’re using the proper steps to ensure safe use of the product.

2. Some good practices for using and applying anhydrous are: be sure you are getting it at least 6 inches deep, it is sealing nicely, and seed is offset from the knife slot.

3. Consider protecting your anhydrous investment with the use of a stabilizer.

4. If Anhydrous application was not possible, you can top dress with ammonium nitrate and use urea ammonium nitrate (UAN) 28% with your corn herbicide.
