Consider Your Whole System: Nitrogen and Sulfur Leaching Potential in Virginia

SPES-39NP Early summer often means locally heavy and sporadic rainfall as thunderstorms deliver intense rains, and 2018 appears to be no different with many areas in eastern Virginia receiving 3+ inches of rain in a few days (Figure 1). These storms also often coincide with the timing of sidedress nitrogen (N) and sulfur (S) applications on corn. While some rainfall after sidedress is very beneficial to facilitate N movement into soil, heavy rain (2+ inches) often leaves us wondering how much, if any, of that recently-applied N remains and if additional N is needed. 8.5 x 11, 4 pages, color pages 1 and 3, DS, 20#, single staple upper left\12\HGFLTAQE201155.png
