Nutrient Management for Fall Crops

Are you planting winter wheat or barley grain this fall? Regulations now require a Fall Soil Nitrate Test (FSNT) for soil nitrate concentrations before nitrogen or manure is applied. FSNT testing is available to farmers from the University Of Maryland Extension offices by the Nutrient Management Advisors without charge. This service is available to both farmers who have Extension develop their plans and to farmers who have their plans completed by others in the community. FSNT testing is also available from agricultural labs for a fee. Confused? Call the Harford County Extension Office with questions at 410-638-3255. This information is also available online at HERE.
