There are many advantages and some disadvantages associated with the fall application of nitrogen fertilizers. The advantages of applying fertilizer at this time appear very convincing. It is easier to get onto the land in the fall. During the fall, famers usually have more time to apply fertilizer than they do in the spring. In the fall the fertilizer companies offer better service. This is because the fall application of fertilizer lengthens out their season, thus making it possible for them to handle more fertilizer.
