Description

The old saying still holds; yield is king. Producers are interested in high crop yields in order to pay for input costs, cover enterprise expenses, and provide profits. Demand for corn grain is increasing rapidly, with large need for expanding ethanol and livestock production. This demand is fueling interest in higher productivity and more continuous corn (CC). Yields are now commonly topping 200+ bu/acre, and risk of yield loss related to nitrogen (N) management weighs as heavily on the minds of producers as it ever has. What N management practices make sense to sustain high yield in corn following soybean, and in continuous corn, while at the same time considering economic return and water quality issues.
