Tractor applying a sidedress nitrogen application to corn

Split nitrogen applications are an economic and environmental win-win in dry years

Nitrogen fertilizer use in agriculture has been increasing; unfortunately, the same is true for nitrogen losses to the environment. Weather, as well as the frequency and timing of nitrogen applications, can affect how efficiently nitrogen is used by the crop to produce yield and how much is lost. One way to improve nitrogen fertilizer use in corn is to split the application so that some is applied at planting and the rest is applied in the growing crop. Farmers can then adjust the rate and timing of the second application depending on the weather.

Want 2 b a better user of N in your corn crop? Check your soil test K levels! Great research by OSU showing what we see in customers fields. Low K requires more N & still delivers less bushels. Raised 44 more bu on 100 LESS lbs of N b/c of better K levels. 0.85 units of N/bu.

Thanks to @OACLiaison for a great virtual presentation on soil. Interactive and important learning for LEAF students. @SoilsAtGuelph @UofGuelphOAC @NorwellDSS

New #scipub from @UoGAgMet @UofG_SES and @FAREUofG authors: Optimizing agronomic N rates increases profit and decreases nitrate losses! More effective to get the right rate than placement, timing, or source.
