Does Farm Tile Affect Nitrate Loss in Soils?

Oct 11, 2011

Question: Does farm tile affect nitrate loss in the soils below?

Answer: Where water goes, nitrate goes. You can look at the tile line, and there will be nitrate. The more water you move out of the field, the more nitrate you move. With proper nutrient management, you can better manage your nitrate loss. Tile depth and spacing are factors in nitrate loss. Listen to Ken Ferrie's full answer in "Corn College TV," Season 2. Click here for Episode 1
2011 provides a great opportunity for either an operating farmer or landlord to put in new tile and deduct 100% of the cost under the bonus depreciation rules.
