Scott Nelson Research Webinar
March 4 @ 9:00 am - 9:30 am CST
Scott Nelson presents his work on Overcoming the Yield Gap in Corn Following Cover Crops with Fluid Fertilizer. The project The hypothesis and logic of this project are as follows: Cover crops and high residue no-till management similarly immobilize nitrogen and other key macro nutrients during early yield formation stages in corn. This immobilization can reduce yield, and therefore prevent farmers from using these practices with corn. Preliminary observations and previous research suggest that this immobilization can be overcome with a starter fertilizer or by using improved fertilizer placement techniques. In this experiment we will strive to elucidate best practices for nitrogen management in corn following a cover crop with the hypothesis that corn yield can be increased provided there is adequate nitrate available to the crop during early yield formation stages.
