Cutting Costs Without Hurting Yields? Check Fertilizer N Rates in Corn after Alfalfa
With tight crop margins for the 2017 growing season, many farmers are looking for ways to cut input costs without hurting yields. One way to do this is by giving the appropriate nitrogen credit when calculating how much N to apply to corn grown after a prior alfalfa crop.
The Long View of Nitrogen Recommendations from Nebraska Extension
At the 2017 Crop Production Clinics, the Nebraska Extension Soils Team is presenting a historical overview of how nitrogen recommendations for corn have developed and changed since the 1950s. We are also discussing what may lay ahead for nitrogen management.
Is Nitrogen Fixation Oversold with Legume Cover Crops?
One expected benefit of using legumes as a cover crop is to provide a source of nitrogen (N) to the cropping system. However, when legumes are included in mixtures with grasses and broadleaves for a relatively short growing period, the amount of actual fixed N may be relatively low.

Project SENSE Sessions to Feature High-Tech Sensors in Action
Project SENSE update sessions are planned for several locations across Nebraska. Growers will learn how to outfit and implement the project's nitrogen management strategy on their operations. Project SENSE (Sensors for Efficient Nitrogen Use and Stewardship of the Environment) focuses on improving the efficiency of nitrogen fertilizer use.
