Regardless of the season, with 360 Y-DROP, you win:
In 2015, mother nature threw buckets of water over much of the corn growing regions of the US. That pushed nitrogen deep into the soil – making it unavailable to the corn plant. Mid-season nitrogen application through 360 Y-DROP fed the crop at the critical time and boosted yields by an average of 13.8 bushels per acre.
Even in a year where nitrogen wasn’t the limiting factor for many of us, corn responded to mid-season application by adding over seven bushels. 360 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.
Moving N application closer to the root mass improves effectiveness – and adds about five bushels. 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.
