2018 Corn Yield Forecasts: Approach and Interpretation of Results
June 29, 2018
Here's how the Yield Forecasting Center will be developing corn yield forecasts for 41 locations across the Corn Belt during the 2018 crop season. Modeling, using Hybrid-Maize, weather data, and on-site verification help researchers estimate yields so growers can adjust management during the season, if necessary.
Is Soybean Yield Limited by Nitrogen Supply?
January 8, 2018
An article from the Proceedings of the 2018 Nebraska Extension Crop Production Clinics exploring research on whether nitrogen supply is limiting soybean yield.
Feasibility of Sensor-Based Nitrogen Fertigation Management in Corn
January 8, 2018
An article from the Proceedings of the 2018 Nebraska Extension Crop Production Clinics on university research testing sensor-based N fertigation treatments.
How Row Spacng Affects Irrigated Soybean in Southwest Nebraska
April 27, 2018
While continuous corn is the most common cropping sequence in southwest Nebraska, adding soybeans to a rotation could help break pest cycles. On-farm research comparing 15- and 30-inch soybean row spacing found increased yields of 4-12 bu/ac with an average 7 bu/ac increase with 15-inch rows.
On-Farm Research Results: Impact of Torque on Corn Yield
March 7, 2018
This report synthesizes the results of seven on-farm research studies of using Torque™, a seed or furrow-applied growth promoter, in Nebraska between 2010 and 2015.
Results from 2017 Soybean Study and Insights for 2018 Planting
February 22, 2018
University researchers report results from studies conducted on herbicide tolerance trait, row spacing (15-inch vs. 30-inch), and soybean maturities (early vs. late) at three locations of the Soybean Management Field Days in summer 2017.
Nebraska Cover Crop Conference Feb. 15 for Corn, Soybean Growers
January 26, 2018
Cover crops offer many benefits, such as improved soil heath and reduced erosion. The challenges lie in the details, including what cover crops to use and how to use them. The Feb. 15 Nebraska Cover Crop Conference tackles these topics for growers using a corn/soybean rotation.
2017 Corn Yield Forecasts as of September 20
September 21, 2017
Crop modelers wrap up their forecasts of rainfed and irrigated corn yields across the Corn Belt for 2017, noting above-average yields for about 80% of the irrigated sites and more than 60% of the rainfed sites. Irrigated yields ranged from 11%-17% over long-term averages at those sites and rainfed yields at those sites were 13%-40% above average. View data for all the sites.
