Yes, sidedressing corn is always good, especially on a wet year where the preplant N is carried too far down by the excess rain. Wait till the corn is maybe 12"-18" tall and then run through it with the sidedressing rig. You can sidedress taller corn but you might prune roots. Some guys dribble the N down the middle of the row but then you are reliant on a rain in the next couple of days to take it into the ground. I apply half of the liquid N or 32% preplant and then sidedress the rest.
Soybeans don't need N. There have been some experiments with applying N to beans but the response isn't much if any and timing is critical. Jim

I would say that I have seen a difference where 10 pounds of actual N is placed in a band at planting for beans when using a row crop planter. Allows them to hit the ground running so to speak till the nodules do their thing. You're right in general when you say beans respond best to fertility but a response can be had to foliar feeding.

Thanks for the response on the N, I apply half my N needs with Ammonium Nitrate and then dribble in the row side dressing. I was more curious whether the liquid P or K would help any or have any positive affect?
