Kenny Brown, Grower, Indiana

Kenny Brown farms 7,000-8,000 acres in Shawnee Township located in central Indiana. He uses ESN because it allows him to use a lower rate of pounds/acre, because it doesn’t get used up as fast as anhydrous. Farmers tend to use around 200 pounds of nitrogen to carry their crops through the season, but by using fewer pounds of ESN you can still expect to have your ears filled by the end of the season. Brown says ESN tends to work even better on a wet year than on a dry year because the nitrogen doesn’t leach into the soil, and he appreciates how he can apply it any time he wants. Brown doesn’t plan on mixing ESN with any other product because it can stand-alone and provide enough nitrogen to your crops all season.
