Nitrogen MGMT Back to Basics
Since the 1950’s when farmers started using nitrogen to boost yields, they have been asking 2 questions: How much Nitrogen do I need (before the season) and how much Nitrogen do I have left (during the season)? For 50 years, DuPont Pioneer has been helping growers answer these questions. Encirca Yield Nitrogen service is the next evolution. This session will walk through the process of how a quality Nitrogen recommendation is made in real time, from defining the variables such as soils and weather to applied agronomics to factoring individual management decisions
