Yield Minute: 2015 Spring Update

It’ spring. Time to get the equipment out and start planting. But, before you get too far down the road – do you know how much nitrogen is in your field?

Matt Foes, regional agronomy manager for 360 Yield Center, shares an update on nitrogen trials on his farm in northern Illinois. Foes tests the soil for nitrates with 360 SOILSCANto find out what percentage of ammonia has converted to nitrate and is subject to weather loss.

360 SOILSCAN is a portable soil lab system that gives you zone-specific soil nitrate analysis in about five minutes, so you can make more-accurate and timely nutrient management decisions.

Watch to see the results of Foes’ nitrate samples. And, to learn more about nitrogen management and 360 SOILSCAN, visit www.360yieldcenter.com/nitrogen.
