Current field trials and topics focusing on improved crop production and profitability will be featured during the free field day at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s South Central Agricultural Laboratory.
The middle to end of September is a good time to establish cover crops by broadcasting seeds into corn or soybean before harvest. Broadcast interseeding before harvest allows cover crops to capture more sunshine, growing degree days and rainfall than drilling after harvest.
Research on cover crops, sensor-based nitrogen management, herbicide-resistant weeds, and the latest trials of insect, disease, and weed management will be in the spotlight Aug. 1 at the South Central Agricultural Lab Field Day. Multiple tours allow guests to focus on their interest areas.
