VR Nitrogen from Central Valley Ag on Vimeo. After another week of random rain, then finally some heat, it’s still difficult to focus on anything other than Nitrogen.

So if my Nitrogen is gone; what now? from Central Valley Ag on Vimeo. There are many great mysteries that we are faced with on a daily basis. What is Stonehenge? Who is buried in Grants Tomb? Why is there always an odd sock in the laundry? I call them great mysteries because I will […]
