NLAg Labs, LLC Nitrogen Management System
Advantages of N-Decision+
N-Decision+ allows consultants, retailers, and growers to have the best information possible when managing input costs while maximizing yield. Why rely on a modeling program to guess at how much nitrogen is available in your system when it is possible to know exactly what is going on in your fields and see what your plant roots are seeing?
Purpose of the Program
Every year nitrogen management is key to being economically successful. We have the tools to fine tune side-dress applications and to find out what our soils are giving you for free.
Q: Who can pull the samples to get them to NLAg Labs, LLC?
A: The grower, consultant, and ag-retailer can all supply NLAg Labs, LLC with the plants and soils needed. If you need help, we can pull them or have one of our alliances pull the samples in a timely manner using the proper protocols needed.
Q: What is the turn around time to get results?
A: Timely. We have a time frame of 24-48 hours on all tissue and in-season nitrate, ammonium, and organic nitrogen samples.
Q: What does our program provide that other programs don’t?
A: We provide information that is based off of production in your soils, not an estimate. This is an inexpensive way to help modify one of the biggest expenses a grower sees each year. We look for all sources of nitrogen available to the plant, not just nitrate, as some programs offer, but a complete view of your total nitrogen pool. N-Decision+ will also show what other macro and micro nutrients are making it into the crop.
