On Farm Research

Assessing the Effects of Split Nitrogen Application in Corn

Nitrogen timing in corn production

  • Start date: 2017
  • Project Length: Ongoing
  • Project Status: Ongoing

Background

Back by popular demand the Manitoba Corn Growers Association is working with Tone Ag Consulting Ltd. again in 2019 to initiate on-farm research looking at nitrogen timing in corn production. The MCGA sees the benefits of having on-farm trials being done in coordination with small plot trial research to try and answer questions growers have related to nitrogen fertility management in corn production.

Protocols:

Objective: The purpose of this project is to quantify the agronomic and economic impacts of split nitrogen applications to corn in alternating randomized strips across the field. There will be a 12 trials conducted across Manitoba.
