It's a *little* more complicated than that.  Snow & rain both "trap" nitrogen - that is, charged nitrogen-containing compounds like nitrates.  It doesn't form new compounds with elemental nitrogen itself (unless there's lightning involved).  Elemental nitrogen (N2) is absolutely useless to living organisms.  You need nitrogen "fixed" into forms like nitrate for it to be useful.  Lightning does that, as do certain bacteria in the roots of certain plants.

So yes, snow & rain do contribute nitrogen-containing compounds to your soil.  I can't imagine that it's a great amount, certainly not compared to fertilizer, but it couldn't hurt, I guess.  I also don't know why snow would be considered better than rain, in that regard.  Maybe it sits there longer so there's more time for it to be absorbed by soil microbes before it runs off?

Brainiac.

I first read that as "male syrup" and nodded in agreement.

It's snowing in midtown.  Make sure to leave hot chocolate and cookies out for the burglars tonight.

Snowing hard in LR now.  Rooftops, lawns, and patio are covered.  Whiter than the Harrison High basketball team eating hummus with sea salt on it.

Highway boys will be grilled over not salting bridges but the weather guys really missed it this time. Broadway Bridge was a bitch this morning.

I don't know all the details, but I know so far the farmers have done very well in the cases that have gone to trial.

Lonoke County jury awards farmers $47.9 million.

Woodruff County jury awarded a farmer $1.3 million.

Arkansas County jury awarded Riceland $139.6 million.

Federal jury in St. Louis awarded two Missouri farmers over $2 million.

$500,000 verdict in a federal trial in St. Louis for a Louisiana farmer.

Federal jury in St. Louis awarded $1.5 million to Arkansas and Mississippi farmers.

I think there are some other, similar verdicts.  Bayer is taking it on the chin.

The case out of Lonoke County is at the Arkansas Supreme Court now as it involves a constitutional question related to the tort-reform acts passed a few years ago.  Specifically, the trial judge in that case held the cap on punitive damages unconstitutional.  The Supreme Court will be called on to take up that question.


To bring up an old topic in this thread, the Supreme Court yesterday ruled in favor of the rice farmers and struck down the cap on punitive damages in Arkansas, thus affirming a punitive damages award of $42 million.
