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.
Biomass production, N uptake, and C:N ratio vary widely across the United States. The N in cover crop biomass will be released within a few weeks after termination, however, decomposition varies with soil moisture, soil temperature and C:N ratios.
Continuous corn is the most common irrigated crop sequence in southwest Nebraska. Although rotating to other crops, such as soybeans, can mitigate some production issues of continuous corn and often boost the next year’s corn yield, larger adoption of soybeans has not readily occurred in this area.
