During the 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015 crop seasons, Adapt-N was thoroughly tested through both research plots and on-farm trials. In collaboration with Land Grant University researchers, extension agents, and independent crop consultants, feedback and trial results have been incorporated into each subsequent version of the tool. View our Case Studies page for examples of strip trial tests and results.

Adapt-N is a software tool that generates its results without the involvement of any in-field equipment. There are no hardware cards or sensors to purchase, and anyone with a computer or smart-phone and access to the internet can use Adapt-N.

Fertilizer Application Equipment

Adapt-N provides the greatest benefit to growers who are able to split their fertilizer across pre-plant and in-season applications. To take advantage of this, in-season sidedressing application requires equipment that can traffic the field during the crop’s critical growth stages. Ideally, sidedressing applications should occur somewhere between growth stages V8 and V16. This means that at least 34″ of clearance is required, with more being ideal.

If you don’t have sufficient clearance

Even if you don’t currently have equipment to provide sufficient clearance, Adapt-N can still help you understand what the impact of such a sidedressing application would be. You can run the tool on a prior season, to see if your pre-plant application was insufficient based on your field’s weather and characteristics, or you can run what-if scenarios to determine what the impact of an in-season application would be.
Adapt-N is commercially available for Corn. A version of the model has been created for Wheat and is beta testing for the 2016 season. Additional crops will also be added.
Cornell University is the creator of Adapt-N, and remains actively involved in the ongoing optimization and expansion of the tool, in conjunction with other collaborators. Agronomic Technology Corp is the exclusive licensee of Adapt-N, and operates the tool commercially.

Data Privacy

We firmly believe that our users own their data. Whether you are a grower or an agronomist, whatever data you put into Adapt-N will never be shared other than with people you specifically designate.
