FALL FERTILIZER APPLICATION SEASON COMPRESSED AGAIN

Harvest delays and a warm start to October didn’t give farmers many opportunities to apply fall fertilizer. But it appears applicators still have time to catch up this month, weather permitting, to hopefully avoid a repeat of a shortened fertilizer season last fall, according to Jean Payne, president of the Illinois Fertilizer and Chemical Association. Payne advises farmers to contact fertilizer applicators to be ready to apply dry fertilizer as soon as the crops are out. (FarmWeekNow)
