Nitrogen Tool

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln has created a new easy-to-use digital tool to help ag producers determine the appropriate application of nitrogen for individual fields, as well as to help determine yield goals.

The tool, an updated version of the corn N calculator, is designed to increase efficiency of nitrogen use, as well as ease of record-keeping. The tool is available as both a mobile app and a web tool.

Users can input specifics for individual fields including:

  • Soil characteristics
  • Soil nitrate sampling data
  • Organic matter
  • Irrigation practices
  • Economic information
  • And more

Use the tool

Nebraska Extension will demonstrate the tool during the Soils School on Feb. 6 and 7, 2024. More details at: https://go.unl.edu/2024soilsschool
