Spring nitrogen (N) availability is affected by many factors such as type of fertilizer and specific nutrient compound applied, use of stabilizers, soil type, and weather conditions. Understanding how N loss occurs can help manage N use efficiency. Determining the amount of N available for plant uptake in the spring and planning nitrogen management steps needed in season can help maximize crop yield potential.
