It is no surprise that the UK recorded one of its wettest Autumns and Winters throughout 2019 and into 2020. The high levels of rainfall recorded has caused many concerns over nitrogen losses from agricultural land. The most significant losses would have been through leaching but also from denitrification, theses loses mean that residual N historically available in the soils for this time of year is either depleted or no longer there. Soil mineral analysis will provide a good guide as to what the potential losses will be, but also the selection of what N source will be vital when looking to replenish these levels.
The utilisation of N fertilizers containing a significant proportion of urea and ammonia nitrogen, such as Urea and UAN, are much more sensitive to ammonia loses through volatilisation and have a significant impact on the environment. By choosing the nitric form, you optimise your yield and maximizing your protein level, thus retaining the nutrients in the soil to optimise plant uptake.
Borealis L.A.T Nitrogen product lines are perfectly suited to complement crop needs and requirements throughout the year and are fully available throughout the UK.
