Abstract

The research objective of this study was to measure corn yield response to nitrogen (N) rate in two tillage systems, tilled and no-till, in a soybean-corn rotation. Results were summarized across sites and years by analysis of the main effects and interaction of N rate and tillage system on corn yield, and through fitting N rate response equations. The across site-year response equations were used to determine economic optimum N rate (EONR) based on a 0.10 N fertilizer price-to-corn price ratio.
