What Have We Learned about Soybean Seed Constituents in Irrigated and Dryland Producer Fields in Nebraska?
June 14, 2021
With a continuous decline in seed protein concentration in U.S. soybeans, UNL researchers examined how irrigation practices in Nebraska may contribute to this issue for soybean growers.
2020 Corn Yield Forecasts: End-of-season Forecasts Suggest Near-average Yields for the Region
September 17, 2020
Our forecasts suggest a near-average year for irrigated corn at most sites. For rainfed corn, the scenario is diverse across regions.
Precision Nitrogen Management On-Farm Research Project
September 1, 2020
Are you interested in how agriculture technologies can improve nitrogen management on your farm? Nebraska Extension received a $1.2 million grant which connects corn and wheat producers across Nebraska with access to cutting-edge technologies through on-farm research.
2020 Corn Yield Forecasts as of August 25
August 27, 2020
Compared with our previous forecasts, there is still a high probability of near-average yields for the majority of the irrigated sites. For rainfed corn, the scenario is diverse across regions.
2020 Corn Yield Forecasts as of August 4
August 6, 2020
Similarly to our previous forecast, there is a high probability of near-average yields for the majority of the irrigated sites. For rainfed corn, the scenario is diverse across regions.
2020 Corn Yield Forecasts as of July 14
July 16, 2020
Although it is still too early to make strong inferences about end-of-season yields for irrigated corn, there is a relatively high probability for near-average yields for a majority of sites.
2020 Corn Yield Forecasts: Approach and Interpretation of Results
July 9, 2020
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.
Q and A: Why is Corn Emergence Uneven This Year?
May 29, 2020
Planting conditions seemed to be “perfect” this year. This allowed a large percent of corn and soybean acres in Nebraska to be planted earlier than in previous years. Because conditions seemed so good, the question is why emergence has been uneven in some fields this year.
