Anhydrous Ammonia Being Applied.

The nurse tanks below were filled and ready for Monday morning when I drove through Atwater on Saturday.  They really got rolling today.  While I understand workload concerns for suppliers as well as farmers, it may be a little early for this.  Soil temperature is below 50 right now, but will it stay there?  Keep in mind that harvest finished extra early.  How warm and early  will our spring be?  How wet?  There are more questions than answers right now.  People ask if they should use nitrification inhibitors.  I give an unequivocal yes.  The days of just adding a little extra are past.  Fertilizer is too expensive and the environmental hazard is significant.
