The article reports on the delay of soil sampling for available nitrogen (N) reserve due to warm and wet winter in Great Britain. Tony Morgan, analyst at Natural Resource Management, advises that sampling could be hold off for about a month. It is said that soil mineral N levels are likely to be higher than normal after the dry autumn.
