AGRONOMY UPDATE

 

Fall Fertilizer Restrictions

 

The Minnesota Department of Agriculture has come out with a groundwater protection rule. This restriction will begin September 1, 2020. The purpose of this rule is to minimize potential nitrogen fertilizers that can contaminate the state’s groundwater and to protect our drinking water.

Part 1 of the Ground Water Protection Rule restricts the application of nitrogen fertilizer in the fall and on frozen soils. Certain areas in the state will be subject to this new restriction. For example: If you farm in an area with vulnerable groundwater or protected areas around a public well with high nitrate, you cannot apply nitrogen fertilizer in the fall.

There are some exceptions to the fall nitrogen fertilizer restriction. Fall nitrogen can be allowed in the form of MAP and DAP or micronutrient fertilizers containing nitrogen if the average applied rate doesn’t exceed 40 pounds of actually N per acre in a field.

For more information you can visit the website below or contact your West-Con Agronomist.
