The 2021 fall harvest is nearly complete. Row crop farmers are looking forward to the 2022 growing season as they contemplate spring planting intentions. Their decisions impact fertilizer and tillage activity, which they’ll complete yet this fall. Fertilizer prices are higher than a year ago – almost double in some cases. There are areas across the Midwest where it isn’t possible to book key fertilizer components for spring application yet. Some co-ops are even having issues getting potash to spread yet this fall. It can feel uncomfortable putting half of the fertilizer down this fall while being uncertain of the cost and availability for the spring. But manure may be your answer. Manure can help ease concerns around having enough phosphorus, potassium, sulfur and the majority of nitrogen you need.
