Wheat School - When & Why You Should Top Dress Your Nitrogen - Matt Gosling


Getting out into your wheat field on a regular basis is a necessity if you really want to give your crop the best chance possible. A regular visual inspection is a great start, but having a knowledge of what’s going on beneath the surface can help you to prevent big losses or get you to the next level in production. That’s where the importance of tissue and soil testing come in.

Nitrogen testing in particular is important in determining what steps you need to take in care of your wheat crop. A well timed application can help save a deficient crop or give your field the boost it needs for increasing yield potential. Timing is key as there is a window that has to be hit in order for the application to be useful for the plants.

In this episode of the Wheat School, Matt Gosling of Premium Ag Solutions offers some advice on when why producers should top dress their wheat with nitrogen.
