Applied Nitrogen (Lbs/Acre)  info icon

This is actual pounds applied nitrogen, not pounds of fertilizer. See glossary for more information.

 

Because of variance of soil depth, texture, climate, and management practices, actual nitrogen needed to optimize yield and/or revenue on your farm may vary from what is predicted here.

To adjust the values below, either move the slider bar or type the desired value into the gray box next to the slider bar.

Soil Nitrate (Lbs/Acre):

info icon
Nitrate already in the top 3ft. of soil.

Organic Matter (%):

info icon
The % of OM in the top 6 inches of soil. Generally, higher OM contributes more available nitrogen to the soils.

Yield Goal (Bushels/Acre):

info icon
Your average spring barley yield. See glossary for more information.

Malt Barley Price ($/Bushel):

info icon
Price paid per bushel for malt barley. Malt barley prices are often substantially higher than feed barley prices. If only interested in feed barley, set the malt and feed prices to the feed level.

Feed Barley Price ($/Bushel):

info icon
Price paid per bushel for feed barley, which will be used if barley doesn't make malt grade. Note that feed barley is generally sold as $/cwt. To convert from $/cwt to $/Bushel, divide by 2. If only interested in feed barley, set the malt and feed prices to the feed level.

Nitrogen Price Per Pound of Active Ingredient ($/Lb):

info icon
Note that price per pound of active ingredient does not typically equal price per pound of fertilizer. See glossary for more information.

Plump Cut Off Percentage (%):

info icon
Under the plump cut off, barley is considered feed quality.

Protein Cut Off Percentage (%):

info icon
Over the protein cutoff, barley is considered feed quality.
