SKU A3634

Author(s) Richard Wolkowski, Keith Kelling, Larry Bundy.

Nitrogen (N) requires careful management when used for crop production on sandy soils because of the high potential for leaching losses of nitrate through these soils. Selecting the appropriate nitrogen rate is the primary management consideration on medium- and fine-textured soils. This publication outlines management considerations for nitrogen use on sandy soils (8 pages; 1995).
