Many ask what are the advantages of fertilizing in the fall over spring? Usually in the fall there is less moisture to deal with then in the spring, which means less compaction from machinery. You also have less of a chance of runoff due to less rain fall compared to spring.
Fall Fertilizing is also more manageable. Your cooperative is more available with having more time, people and machinery to use and run in the fall. One of the greatest advantages as the Farmer is you don’t have to hold up spring planting while waiting for your fertilizer application.
In addition, fall tillage ensures that the fertilizer is incorporated into the root zones. All in all, fall tillage can save you time, money and the stress of getting your fields prepared and planted.
Lastly, you have a great opportunity to save money with our Fall Fertilizer financing programs. Contact your Agronomist today to ask about our Fall Fertilizer programs or to schedule your application.
