We don't use AA any more. There were several serious accidents involving AA in this area about 15 years ago and the insurance premiums just got too high for the local suppliers. Everyone uses 28% liquid or bulk spread urea now. The local recommendation is 1.0#N per bu corn and it seems to work. Nitrogen is all spring applied here because of too much runoff and leaching with fall applied Nitrogen. And complaints from the eco crowd about nitrogen runoff into Lake Huron if you fall apply.

We put roughly 180 per acre on the urea on 100 day corn cause thats all we could get! I think we are gonna go after 90 day next spring. The urea figure is a close guesstimation cause the coop only had a urea total overall and an acre figure and we went a little heavy in spots.

I like using 200 lbs actual with full rate of N-serve ,,put on in April ,,,this year on our 36 inch rows had a 230 plus average ,,according to bin measures and the 14,000 plus bushels hauled off ,,Ole 480 had to add 24 inch's to hopper top to make a pass on half mile end fields and would almost overflow it
