Crops and Soils
Throughout 2015, a Yield Forecasting project was initiated with the objective of forecasting in-season soil water-nitrogen dynamics, in-season plant growth, and end-of-season grain yields. This concept was initiated to help farmers and agronomists make in-season management decisions, plus look back on the growing season to see what management practices could have been changed to improve grain yields and net profits, but also reduce nitrogen loss.
