Seasonal and Rotational Influences on Corn Nitrogen Requirements

Authors: ,


This project is designed to study the nitrogen (N) fertilization needs in continuous corn (C-C) and corn rotated with soybean (C-S) as influenced by location and climate. Multiple rates of N fertilizer are applied in the spring, with the intent to measure the yield response to N fertilization within each rotation on a yearly basis at multiple sites across Iowa. This allows the determination of N requirements for each rotation practice, differences that exist between the two rotations, responses to applied N across different soils and climatic conditions, and evaluation of tools used to adjust the N application.
