While dry weather is allowing nitrogen (N) application to start in some places in Illinois, the ongoing cool temperatures continue to raise questions about N management this spring.
University of Illinois Crop Sciences and the Council on Best Management Practices (C-BMP) are organizing a webinar for Thursday, March 27 at 8:00 AM to address some of these issues, including fate of fall-applied N, use of inhibitors this spring, and how cool soils might affect soil N supply and plant uptake.
Participants will also learn about a program, newly funded by the Nutrient Research & Education Council, to conduct field-scale N rate trials in several dozen fields across Illinois in 2014. Producers interested in hosting such a trial are invited to attend to learn more.
