This video describes how and why modern nitrogen fertilizer was developed, as well as the strategies farmers use to grow healthier and higher yielding crops with nitrogen ferti
Nitrogen inputs must be kept in balance with other essential nutrients to achieve optimum plant nutrition while meeting yield goals, closing existing attainable yield gaps, improving and maintaining soil fertility, and sustaining healthy soil conditions; all while also protecting water and air quality.
