This new research will focus on increasing sorghum’s fertilizer use efficiency, as well as other aspects of sorghum’s fertilizer use, including nitrogen sensing, signaling and downstream regulatory pathways.
Hosted by UNL this year, the free workshop will feature water and nitrogen management concerns such as crop modeling, climatology and N unpredictability, soil health and NUE indicators, and new technologies.
Nebraska Extension research on growing cover crops to reduce nitrate leaching and improving soil resilience in Nebraska communities where groundwater nitrate concentration in municipal wells is rising.
Laila Puntel's focus will be on improving efficiency and profitability of soil nutrient management, particularly through the use of precision ag technologies. She will be conducting research at university centers and one-on-one with growers through on-farm research.
Understanding how the three types of nitrogen stabilizers work can be helpful in deciding whether to add one to your spring application. Short- and long-term studies in Nebraska offer insight into how they performed across multiple years. Now, if you only knew how many inches of rain you'd get the first six weeks after application.
An article from the Proceedings of the 2018 Nebraska Extension Crop Production Clinics about recent research to validate or adapt canopy sensor-guided in-season N application practices for fields with manure or other organic material applied and to improve the predictionof fertilizer N substitution for organic materials.
