2 Fluid Journal Spring 2002 slot at a consistent depth under all operating conditions." Summing up Targeting applications makes good economic sense when compared with broadcast application. When broadcasting, the fertilizer is not incorporated into the soil, thus it can be lost to runoff and erosion. It can also be harmful to plants and their growth if direct leaf contact is prevalent. Sidedressing, on the other hand, improves plant food availability and N uptake, eliminates N tie-up in surface residues, and reduces water runoff and associated contamination. Placing UAN in the root zone where plants can feed on it throughout their life cycle can boost yields and profit potential. Carrie J. Allen for EWMCD, Pekin, Illinois.
