The article tackles the need for making early plans to apply more nitrogen (N) in-season for optimal yields. Soil scientist Peter Scharf recommends farmers make early arrangements to be able to apply in-season N to cornfields where and if needed during 2012. High clearance sprayers equipped with Trimble's GreenSeeke sensors have been used by farmers in southern Minnesota to apply supplemental N to corn. Yields for Missouri farmer Ryan Britt have been boosted by in-season N applications. INSET: N-rate calculator.
