Will you sidedress nitrogen on corn this year?

Fertilizer research shows strong value in sidedressing nitrogen for greater efficiency when the corn crop needs it more. We'd like to know if you sidedress nitrogen on your corn crop. Is it something you don't even want to consider because of the risk of not getting into the field? Or, do you sidedress all of your corn acres? Do you fall somewhere in between? Take our poll and let us know. Please leave a comment with how many corn acres, or what percentage of your acreage, you sidedress with nitrogen.

Which inputs will you cut back in 2016?

Prices are still low, and inputs still haven't met the drop. This may lead farmers to cut inputs in 2016. We'd like to know, compared to your 2015 input expenses, where do you plan to cut the most for 2016? Will you cut back most on fertilizer? Seed? Herbicide? Will you cut across the board? Or, will you stick with 2015 cost levels? Feel free to leave a comment about your choices below!


How much nitrogen will you sidedress this year?

Timely nutrient application is a must for farmers, particularly in a low-price season. Will you sidedress nitrogen this year to take advantage of feeding the crop when it needs it? Maybe you'll apply only some nitrogen as sidedress? Or, will you stick with spring and fall applications only? Take our poll and let us know, and feel free to leave comments about your nutrient application practices below!
