Fall application of anhydrous ammonia deserves attention

by Wayne Flanary, regional agronomist

The application timing of ammonia as a nitrogen fertilizer in the fall deserves careful attention. Growers should consider long term research that indicates that soil temperatures should approach 50 degrees Fahrenheit at a 6-inch depth before application.

It is better to even wait till soil temperatures reach 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Once soil temperatures drop below this level, ammonia conversion is slow and risk is reduced.

The Coonridge Digest: New political party: Don’t Know Nothing and Don’t Care

 by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from the Ridge.

It’s embarrassing but one of my dear friends is a terrorist. I suppose this will blow my cover and open me up to a CIA investigation but I just can’t hold it in any longer. She’s a genuine terrorist… more dangerous to our national well-being than any bomb-toting frequent flier.
