Red clover plow down is a cheap source of nitrogen. Order some seed now.

High commodity prices, fertilizer shortages world-wide and dealers in Ontario buying product as they sell it are leading to increases in fertilizer prices for the 2011 crop. They will not be as great as the increases a few years ago, but expect to pay more for fertilizer in 2011 than you did in 2010.
If you are interested in getting a good buy on nitrogen, I can tell you where it can be found. It is sort of in your land. You can get this nitrogen if you follow one easy step.
Broadcast red clover on your winter wheat. Clover spread will now give you free nitrogen next year.
