Fertilizer-N is a big investment for crop production in Nebraska and elsewhere. After harvest, growers tend to plan their fertilizer-N management for the next year’s crop. But the question is how much nitrogen can they apply to get the most profit from their fertilizer-N investment?
The Yield Forecasting Center (YFC) will provide real-time information on corn phenology and forecasts of corn yield potential every three weeks, starting in mid-July, to aid growers and ag industry in making management, logistics, and marketing decisions through the 2020 season.
Forecasted end-of-season yields for rainfed corn across the Corn Belt indicate above-average yield at two-thirds of the sites, with yields well above historical averages in Nebraska, Kansas, and Missouri. See data for individual irrigated and rainfed sites.
