Minimizing Nitrate Loss to Drainage by Optimizing N Rate and Timing for a Corn-Corn-Soybean Rotation


Start Date: 2008

Principal Investigator: Gyles Randall 

Organization: University of Minnesota, Southern Research and Outreach Center

Status: Complete

Background Information:

Despite considerable acres being converted to corn-corn-soybean (C-C-S) rotations in Minnesota, most of the nitrogen management information available is specific to corn-soybean rotation. Since the effects of nitrogen rate and application timing on nitrate loss in tile drainage are not known under high-yield conditions, this study set out to answer the following questions:
