This proposal is intended to test the nutrient analysis of hog manure in order to adjust application rate on a load-by-load basis with a goal of applying the manure using a variable rate prescription.

The objective of this project is to develop a crop rotation that significantly reduces nitrate loss and soil erosion compared to the traditional corn-soybean rotation while maintaining profitability in Southeastern Minnesota.
As an essential nutrient potassium (K) plays a critical role in corn plant development and chemical processes. As a result of the number of roles it plays in the plant,
The purpose of this project is to evaluate some of the Variable Rate Nitrogen programs against a check to see if they can reduce the amount of N per bushel of corn produced and to see if there is enough economic return to pay for the program.
The goal of this project is to evaluate the optimal time to inter-seed cover crops while simultaneously applying nitrogen. While this practice has become more popular, very little field-scale research has been conducted to determine how early we can inter-seed cover crops to maximize their benefit while still maintaining yield.
We are interested in working with Sulfur and its effects on Nitrogen uptake. We have seen a definite advantage to using more Sulfur and we are wondering if we could see more benefits in our banded situation with our strip till system.
