McNay Research and Demonstration Farm
Crops and Soils
This project was designed to study the N fertilization needs in continuous corn (CC) and corn rotated with soybean (CS) as influenced by location and climate. Multiple rates of fertilizer N were spring applied, with the intent to measure yield response to N within each rotation on a yearly basis for multiple years at multiple sites across Iowa. This will allow determination of N requirements for each rotation, differences that exist between the two rotations, responses to applied N across different soils and climatic conditions, and evaluation of tools used to adjust N application.
