Nitrogen Application to Corn Following Cover Crops

The purpose of this study was to better understand N management of corn following cover crops. Nitrogen was applied as urea broadcast at V6 at four rates: 0, 100, 175, and 250 lb N/ac. Additionally, the 0 lb N/ac treatment was split so that half had a cover crop preceding it, and half did not […]
