The American Society of Agronomy (ASA) will provide a corn nitrogen (N) use efficiency webinar sponsored by Verdesian Life Sciences on Tuesday, December 4, 2018 from 11 am – 12 pm Central, 12 pm – 1 pm Eastern.
This live educational webinar will be presented by Dr. Fred Below, a professor of Crop Physiology at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, and Brad Bernhard, a research specialist and Ph.D. student under the advisement of Dr. Below and will focus on N use efficiency best practices for corn and will provide participants with:
- An understanding of the N uptake patterns of modern corn hybrids,
- A research-based review of fertilization technologies that provide N at the right time and in the right place (e.g., Y-drop technology, side-dressing tools, nitrification inhibitors),
- An examination of the impacts of different N fertilizer sources on corn N use and productivity.
