Adam Steinbower, Retailer, Ohio

Adam Steinbower of Nutrien Ag Solutions sells chemical seed and fertilizer direct to farmers in Morrow County, Ohio. Steinbower says he is confident about using ESN, selling 85-90 per cent ESN for all nitrogen sales. He prefers to use ESN pre-plant because it alleviates side dressing – ESN is a one and done application. With zero volatility, ESN is convenient and covers a lot more acres versus applying anhydrous or side dressing. Steinbower has done a lot of side-by-side trials with ESN versus other nitrogen sources, finding that 90 per cent of the time ESN has come out on top with anywhere from a five to 30-bushel increase.
