New UVM Nitrogen Recommendations for Corn are Coming!

With genetic improvements that have increased corn yield potential and the advent of good alternative approaches for determining in-season crop nitrogen need (i.e., sidedress N), it is evident that the UVM recommendations for nitrogen fertilizer on corn need to be updated.  While the entire document Nutrient Recommendations for Field Crops in Vermont will be revised next year, we will soon (within the next day or so) be releasing an addendum to that document that will serve as the UVM nitrogen recommendations for corn production during the 2016 growing season.  The revisions are not earth-shattering, but do account for the aforementioned realities.  Stay tuned!
