Top dressing and split application

It is best to apply all nutrients at the time of seeding to reduce application costs; however, in some years when moisture is limiting at the time of seeding this may not be the most economical approach. If moisture is limiting in the spring, the amount of N and S fertilizer should be reduced to obtain reasonable target yields. In the event of rain and increased yield potential, supplemental N fertilizer can be dribble banded using a split nozzle or drop tubes.
