This results in most growers hedging to the side of over application to ensure desired yields.”

CropLife: Soil, Scouting Programs Continue To Gain Value

“We are encouraging growers to look at soil quality more holistically,” says Dr. Harold van Es, Professor at Cornell University and lead inventor of the Adapt-N nitrogen modeling program. “Traditionally, soil testing has focused on nutrients and pH, that is, the chemical aspects of the soil.

PrecisionAg: Split Nitrogen Application: Where The 4Rs Get Real

When Illinois Grower Jeremy Wilson hit the farm conference circuit these past two years, one of his talks was always packed out — the story of his intense nitrogen management approach. His opening statement declared, “If you’re not applying nitrogen three times a year, you need to re-think your nitrogen plan.” While many may view such a program as extreme, the current value of and methods for split application deserve a look.

Use of in-season applications has been a common practice in the humid regions of the U.S. — and is becoming even more prevalent — especially along the East Coast, notes Dr. Harold van Es, Professor at Cornell University and lead inventor of the Adapt-N nitrogen modeling program. Environmentally sensitive areas like the Delmarva Peninsula have long committed to spring and in-season application.
