Denitrification of the Soil | Deep Dive into why this occurs and best practices to reduce this risk

1/9/2024
The nitrogen nutrient is a challenging topic due to a variety of factors that change its bonding to the soil The nitrogen cycle also changes in its physical and chemical form. This creates nitrogen loss risks, lack of availability to the plant, and even its location in the soil and atmosphere. It can reside in the soil as ammonium with a positive charge or convert to different forms of nitrate as a negative charge. After that it can volatilize and become a gas, leaving the soil due to anaerobic bacteria to become lost in the atmosphere. Here is a brief deep dive to cover one piece of this puzzle. Joining me is Celena Kipping, agronomist for SW Missouri and SE Kansas to discuss this important nutrient in a successful crop. TOP Ag Services is a Beck's Hybrids seed dealer.
