    By Laura Barrera

    Published Aug 13, 2018

    According to a paper written by University of Kentucky soil scientist John Grove, Ward and University of Maryland soil scientist Ray Weil, research conducted in Kentucky from 1980-81 looked at corn’s uptake of surface-applied potassium under moldboard plowed and no-tilled plots that were established in 1970... 132 ppm in the moldboard plowed plot — potassium uptake of the no-tilled corn was 130% of the moldboard-plowed corn... Scientists concluded “this strongly suggests that the potassium nutrition of the two corn crops was improved by potassium stratification... WeilJasa’s research also supports that placing phosphorus higher in the soil for corn performs better than phosphorus placed deeper. In 2004, he compared yields between corn that received:No phosphorusPhosphorus applied with an anhydrous applicator at 5 inches deep, 15 inches from the rowPhosphorus applied 5 inches deep, 5 inches away on both sides of the rowPhosphorus applied in-furrowThe corn that received the 5x5 and in-furrow placements both yielded around 10 bushels higher than the other two applications, and Jasa notes that the 5x5 and in-furrow were statistically the same yield...

    What Does CRISPR Mean for Modern Agriculture?

    By Amanda Allworth

    Published Jun 6, 2018

    The USDA began reporting corn yield estimates in 1866. That year, the average farm was harvesting 24... 6 bushels of corn per acre... Yield averages in corn remained relatively flat for nearly 70 years from the mid-1800’s until hybrids were widely introduced and adopted by farmers in the 1940’s. Then, in the late 1990’s genetically modified (GM) corn hit the market and Roundup Ready hybrids became the new norm for farmers looking for a more efficient way to manage weeds...

    Are Nitrogen Stabilizers Worth Using? 3 Factors to Consider

    By Laura Barrera

    Updated May 26

    According to Cornell University Cooperative Extension, nitrogen loss can occur in three ways:Denitrification: Nitrate converts into gaseous forms of nitrogen which are lost to the atmosphere Volatilization: Ammonium (NH4) converts to ammonia (NH3) gas which is released to the atmosphere Leaching: Nitrate, which is negatively charged like soil particles and not well retained by the soil, is washed downward by excess soil water beyond the root zone of crops... The University conducted a near three-decade study on N-Serve, a nitrapyrin nitrification inhibitor, that was applied along with anhydrous ammonia in the spring on an irrigated, continuous corn field with silt loam soil near Clay Center, Neb... The University of Nebraska has also looked at urease inhibitors used with surface-applied urea ammonium nitrate (UAN) for corn in central Nebraska for 3 years... The products were surface-applied before corn emergence with 180 pounds of liquid UAN...
