The article focuses on Woody Miley and Dick Maples, both agricultural scientists and their work in the field of agriculture. The duo guided producers and growers about how to tune nitrogen management in cotton. In the late 1970s and 1980s, the agricultural yields were higher due to such guidance and education. Both launched a petiole nitrate nitrogen monitoring program, under which they suggested the appropriate nitrogen content in the soil in order to get maximum productivity. The program was a big success and applauded among the farmers.
