Final N - Dry


BASE UK Member
Missed any meaningful rain over the last couple of weeks and no rain forecasted for the month ahead, is it a worthwhile investment applying the final split? or will most of it just be immobile or volatilise? Interested to hear everyone's current thinking.


Yes its worthwhile. Well that's what I keep telling myself now its done, I have put on a fair chunk below my normal rate anyway :bag: It will rain, eventually....


The dew will dissolve it.

Rain when it does arrive will make good use of it. We’ve got a while until harvest yet.

If it stays dry then I guess the N will just be there for the crops in the autumn to pick up.

Did the same here except we gave it 1 1/4 cwt/ac

That's 54 kg N / ha for the young ones
Looks like we did right putting that last dose on , tho my brother did tell me it was to windy to spread yesterday, in my book it was better on the ground before any rain than to wait for a perfect spreading day.

But 5 mm so far today, gratefully received!!!!!!!


I started at 5 this morning and have been spreading through wind and rain to get it on but I'm glad I did. We've had 7mm today and granuals I applied this am have gone.
Id have liked to have had the final dose on wheat sooner but I cut it back because if it had stayed dried what I had already applied would have been plenty.

I have still cut back 20-30 kgN/ha as it is.
