Major Benefit #7 - MRBs® can eliminate nitrogen loss.
According to independent research, fertilizer loss due to volatilization (gassing off) robs farmers of potential profit--- a threat that is even greater when conditions are dry. Testing conducted by the Bourgault agronomy team over the summer of 2015 observed differences in nitrogen loss & crop yield when comparing nitrogen banded at 1" & 2" depths, with ideal moisture conditions. Drills with MRBs® allow for the adjustment of fertilizer placement independent to the seed depth. This critical feature allows producers to band the nitrogen as deep as conditions dictate to reach moisture & minimize nitrogen loss.
