Dry fertilizer broadcast vs streaming liquid?

Anybody notice difference between spreading dry or spraying liquid

Historically urea is cheaper but lately per credit is even money. I like 28 for corn early season because of the quick availability. 28 is way more versatile, can be put on with pre emerge, and can be on farm stored easily. when price is even 28 once a week and twice on Sunday.

Have done both dry and liquid nitrogen in the past. As long as you can catch some moisture timely then you won’t see much difference in my opinion. If incorporating pre plant then I most definitely haven’t seen a difference. Personally liked the dry for pre plant corn as we where applying into waist high wheat stripper straw from previous year. Felt that all that straw was tying up the liquid even...

Dry land for corn and wheat. Apply liquid myself. Just wondering if there is better uptake and yeild gain with one or the other

That is a broad question. Can you please be more specific on farming practices, crops, fertilizer types, and dry land or irrigation? Are you applying yourself or having custom applied?
