Staygreen 2018 – Nitrogen Management for Corn
Last year we helped growers make up to $30/acre through reduced inputs, improved yields or both. Let us help you take your nitrogen management to the next level!
What’s Involved with Staygreen?
- Pre Visit Assessment: We take information about previous and future nitrogen applications, planting date, GDU’s, crop stage and much more into consideration.
- Field Visit: We will visit your field at the appropriate growth stage (any time after V6) based on your nitrogen application strategy. Our sampling technique is customized based on your farm practices.
- Analysis: Samples go back to the lab for analysis.
- Recommendations: We provide recs for Nitrogen and other nutrients as well.
The Staygreen program provides the following insights.
Crop Demand: The amount of nitrogen that a corn crop will need can vary by over 100 lbs! The most overlooked part of N management is how much you are going need to maximize yield. As part of our analysis we measure your crop potential.
Soil Supply: We measure the nitrogen that the soil can supply to meet your crop demand.
Nitrogen Recommendation: If we know demand and supply, we can make a proper assessment.
VRT Assessment: Our sampling technique can tell us whether or not your field could benefit from a variable rate application of N. If you have the ability to do variable rate N we make a prescription map for you (additional cost)
Other Limiting Nutrients: There are many nutrients that could be potentially limiting your crop. By analyzing plant tissue samples for N,P, K, Ca, Mg, Na, Zn, Mn, Fe, Cu, B & Al we can look the nutrient balance.
Cost: $250/Field (discounts apply for multiple fields)
