How can placement of nitrogen fertilizer impact productivity, profitability, and sustainability?
Placement and timing of nitrogen fertilizer is key to crop performance. Dr. Khosla will cover recent work on managing spatial variability in soils and yield for precise application of nitrogen.

Grid and zone-based plant tissue testing for variable rate application of micronutrients 
 
In-season tissue testing is a powerful tool to diagnose nutrient deficiencies, and in the case of micronutrients these deficiencies can often be corrected with an in-season application. Recently researchers, ag retailers, and farmers have been stepping up their game with tissue testing and in-season applications with grid or zone-based tissue sampling and variable rate applications.

Wednesday, August 26, 2020 – 2 PM EDT
Is there enough time to use the data collected in 2020 for variable rate applications in 2020?
 
Variable-rate application maps for fall applications of phosphors, potassium, or lime are most powerful when the current crop season data can be included. However, in many cases, the time to process that data is limited by changing weather conditions, the planting of a cover crop, or prepping the next crop.

Optimum strip-till placement: soil, nutrient, and crop considerations 
 
Strip-till placement matters. Efficient farmers need more than just straight rows to take strip-till production to the next level. This presentation will focus on a key question that farmers have with respect to strip-till positioning. Dr. Vyn will address soil condition, nutrient placement, and crop management factors that might be considered in making that decision.

Evaluating 2020 in-field testing data 
 
Field testing of new products, services, and conservation practices during the growing season is gaining momentum. This presentation will review adequate experimental design, trends in the ag field research sector, data collection, how to evaluate that data, and how many years or locations are necessary to make the best financial, performance, and environmental decision about using a new product.
