Concern over volatilization losses from surface applied nitrogen are justified during periods of high temperatures, high winds and little rain in the foreseeable future. Agronomists advising growers can help farmers by reviewing  conditions that favour high volatilization potential in deciding on the merits of using an enhanced efficiency fertilizer like Agrotain (NBPT) or ESN.  Manitoba Ag
