Producers face many options related to nitrogen (N) management for corn production. Several questions should be considered this fall to help gain the most return from applied N. Some producers like fall anhydrous ammonia applications because they fit into their management system. They also apply N in the fall for several important reasons: often drier soils, potentially less compaction, getting the job done, avoiding planting delays or stand problems, and reducing work loads in busy spring or sidedress time periods.
