YaraLiva CAN-17 is the preferred choice for early spring and fall fertilization of almonds because it provides your trees with nitrate-N and water-soluble calcium.
Nitrate-N is immediately available to roots and enhances the uptake of calcium, magnesium and potassium. This is an important benefit when soils are cold and root growth needs to be maximized.
The use of UAN during summer months provides cost effective nitrogen and helps to acidify the soil. While this can be beneficial in alkaline soils, be cautioned that this can be detrimental in the long term.
Please monitor the pH of your drip zone and increase your usage of YaraLiva products before it reaches a tipping point.
The addition of soluble calcium during spring applications improves root growth and sets the crop up for improved yields this fall.
