Crops are maturing rapidly this summer and harvest is likely to occur early this year. This may leave plenty of time for application of nitrogen (N) this fall, and many producers will find it hard to resist the opportunity to get a jump on spring work. However, information gathered by using precision farming technologies indicates that these producers are placing their profits at greater risk than has been generally recognized.
