A corn plant acquires more than 60% of its nitrogen from a horizontal radius of about 7 inches from the stalk base. Traditional sidedress methods apply nitrogen in the middle of the crop row — nearly 15 inches away. With 360 Y-DROP, you can apply nitrogen within 2 to 3 inches of the stalk base — that means nearly 80% of the root mass is in the application zone. The funneling effect of corn leaves then pushes the nitrogen to the root mass for rapid uptake, even with modest precipitation or dew.
Never before has the sidedress window been so wide. Y-DROP gives you the flexibility to extend the midseason application window from V6 to VT — more than 30 days — for more control over when and how your nitrogen is applied.
