Wet Soils, Yellow Crops and Options for Midseason Applications of Nitrogen Fertilizer

With the large rainfall events across many parts of Manitoba recently, some farmers are noticing yellowing in their crops and wondering if they should top up their fields with some more nitrogen fertilizer. Unfortunately, there are no easy rules to follow or large experimental datasets to refer to for making this type of decision.

The attached article by Dr. Don Flaten, University of Manitoba, and John Heard, Manitoba Agriculture, outlines some principles if considering midseason application of nitrogen fertilizer.

Wet Soils, Yellow Crops and Options for Midseason Applications of Nitrogen Fertilizer – June 2016

And remember….the first issue to consider is whether the crop yellowing is from N deficiency or simply flooding stress due to excess water. Applying N fertilizer onto crops that are suffering primarily from flooding stress could be a poor investment.

Recent Precipitation Amounts in Manitoba

A weather system has resulted in varying amounts of precipitation across Manitoba. Below is a map showing Accumulated Precipitation from midnight on May 31st to 9:00 am on June 1st:

Total Precip - 12 am May 31 to 9 am June 1, 2016

Of course each individual weather station may not capture exactly happened in your neck of the woods due to the inherent variability of weather events, i.e. thundershowers.

A feature of Manitoba Agriculture’s Ag-Weather Program is the Rain Watch site which shows accumulation of rainfall in various timeframes (in the past hour, since midnight and for the month).
