My winter wheat looked like it was starting to grow again last weekend and was planning on putting down the rest of my nitrogen on Saturday. However it looks like we might be in for more snow Saturday night. I was looking for your thoughts on application of nitrogen before a snow storm.
thanks
Paul.

I just read and article on N application on wheat. Lots of guys try to get it on while its frozen for obvious reasons however, OSU extension advises against it. Quoted from the article: "A producer may get away with applying N in February on wheat. However university data has not shown a yield advantage for February applications, but results have shown a major N loss and yield reduction from pre-greenup applications.

Why take the risk, just wait until greenup; the wheat does not need most of the N until April and May anyway." - Link: http://www.farmanddairy.com/news/may-want-to-avoid-applying-nitrogen-to-wheat-in-february/47941.html

They say best time to fertilizer is just before the last snow storm. Good luck with that planning. We would put some on at planting, and some more in the spring.

I thought snow was fertilizer! Around here snow on the wheat or oats is a good thing! But most of the guys probably fertilize too.

As far as I'm concerned, it would be the best thing for it if you can get it on before the snow. Only if your field isn't muddy already of course. The snow will blanket the wheat and nitrogen and take it right down to the roots when it starts to melt. Bob

Or if the ground is frozen it will dissolve and run down the creek with the melting snow-The best way is-if possible-is to work it in!
