Mineralization Potential of Agricultural Soils and Canopy Sensing Technologies to Predict Corn Nitrogen Needs after Fertilization in Minnesota

University of Minnesota/Fabián G. Fernández

This project will provide needed information to help fine-tune current fertilizer nitrogen (N) rate guidelines based on mineralization potential of different soils. In addition, this project will benefit farmers as they will know from this study whether or not in-season N applications are beneficial to supply N to the crop and under what conditions relative to more traditional practices.
