Soil Nutrient Levels Can Be A Concern On Newly Acquired Land

(The following article recently appeared in a PotashCorp ‘field reports’ bulletin, Fall 2016) Changes Expected With Rented Farmland Kelvin Leibold, Iowa State University Extension farm management specialist, focuses his efforts on North Central Iowa, where between 61 to 70 percent of all farmland is rented.  “Last year, there were a few farmers in our area that had to reorganize and let rented farmland go,” he … Read more

Nitrogen Applications For High Yield Soybeans

Results from a two-year (mid 1990’s) Kansas State University study at four irrigated sites in Kansas show that late-season application of N to soybeans at the R3 growth stage will increase soybean yields. These results, coupled with similar results in other  states, suggested that retail input suppliers, public and private labs and consultants who make fertilizer recommendations should consider N applications on irrigated soybeans with … Read more

Ammonium Sulfate and UAN Solution Blends

Depending on the supply of ammonium thiosulfate (ATS, 12-0-0-26S) at times and the purchase price differential between ammonium sulfate and ATS, there are sometimes inquiries made about substituting ammonium sulfate for ATS in blending with UAN solution. Ammonium thiosulfate is a preferred source of sulfur in clear solution fertilizers because it allows for much higher nutrient analysis in finished blends than ammonium sulfate. Ammonium sulfate … Read more

The Fluid Journal features case studies, news and research, with over two decades of valuable research in its archives!

 

Fluid Research

The Fluid Fertilizer Foundation is the only organization with a mandate for fluid research. We have invested over $3 million in research projects selected by industry personnel. We pool our resources to do collectively what can’t be done individually.

Our research has helped improve traditional fertility programs and is evidenced by an increase in fluid fertilizer consumption from 13 million tons in 1982 to over 20 million tons today – while producing a ripple effect on research at universities around the world, including U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Australia.
