Why is early-season nitrogen fertilization not a common practice on soybeans?


The concern is that nitrogen applied during vegetative stages in soybeans may prevent symbiotic nitrogen fixation from fully developing. Yet, ammonium sulfate fertilization at planting (from a few weeks before planting up to V4-V5) has shown to be beneficial in promoting root development and ultimately resulting in higher yields of timely planted soybeans.
