The recovery of fertilizer nitrogen by crops in the year of application is usually cited as being about 50%, despite considerable efforts to improve nitrogen efficiencies in agricultural systems. The use of fertilizer additives containing urease and/or nitrification inhibitors may improve fertilizer N efficiency. This was evaluated in four experiments conducted at multiple locations across the Canadian Prairies.

Canola grown in years or locations with increased temperatures shows a significant decline in seed yield. Research has shown a ∼7 bu/ac yield loss with a 5.4°F increase in growing season temperatures. Given the importance of canola in western Canada and the fact that canola is a cool-season crop, continued applied and basic research into heat tolerance is of critical importance.

Soil acidification, a common issue in high-rainfall areas of the U.S. and Canada, has become a more prevalent problem in the semi-arid areas of the western U.S. Liming is an effective way to mitigate soil acidity as the carbonate reacts with hydrogen ions in the soil solution to increase the soil pH. However, questions exist about the type of liming product, lime rate, cost effectiveness, and how long the lime benefits last, especially in regions that have historically not needed lime, like much of the Great Plains.

Overseeding of bermudagrass with perennial ryegrass is often performed to provide green cover of dormant warm-season turfgrass in the winter. Fraise mowing is a cultural practice that can be used to disrupt the soil surface and hasten establishment of overseeded perennial ryegrass. Research was conducted to determine the most effective timing of overseeding for perennial ryegrass establishment in Northeast Mississippi, and to compare fraise mowing with other common cultural practices performed to enhance overseeding establishment.

To make precision agriculture work, we need to gather a lot of critical information about the field. Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) introduced an era of on-demand remote-sensing data collection at fine spatial and temporal resolutions. With the help of UAS, detailed maps of the field can be generated, which can help farmers see how their crops are doing and where they might be facing challenges. These maps can also show if the farming methods are working well or if they need to be adjusted. In this article, we’ve provided an overview of the current state-of-the-art UAS sensors and their applications, along with associated challenges and prospects of UAS mapping in agriculture.

Various research and breeding programs study phenotypical traits—or traits that can be discerned via the five senses—to evaluate the quality of their target crops. However, getting data on these traits, often via human-made measurements, can be time-consuming, subjective, and inaccurate, hampering research efforts. This episode, Mitchell discusses his work developing a high-throughput, affordable way to capture one important phenotypical trait: fruit shape.

The Red River Valley of North Dakota and Minnesota is a major sugarbeet production region in the United States. Due to conventional tillage practices, soils have less residue cover after sugarbeet harvest in the fall, and the soil is exposed to wind and water erosion. In the spring, severe damage due to wind blast of soil particles can cause sugarbeet stand loss. Cover crops have the potential to reduce the impacts of soil erosion and improve nutrient use efficiency. Interseeding cover crops before harvest increases the likelihood of cover crop establishment and growth.

New high-yielding spring wheat cultivars are being grown widely across the Canadian Prairies. As yields rise, grain protein levels can only be maintained by increasing the N availability to crop, often reducing fertilizer use efficiency. An additional concern when increasing the amount of N fertilizer being applied to the crop is the increased risk of lodging, reducing the crop’s yield, quality, and harvestability. This article reports on research evaluating the effect of agronomic management practices on spring wheat lodging risk, grain yield, and protein content in the eastern Canadian Prairies.

In general, winter wheat yields are maximized when planted in October in Kentucky. However, it is common for wheat planting to be delayed until November due to limited resources, equipment problems, and/or weather conditions. Two agronomic strategies were investigated to determine whether either could mitigate yield reductions following delayed wheat planting: increased seeding rate and in-furrow phosphorus.

Potassium (K) is an essential element for crop growth, playing a key role in photosynthesis, protein synthesis, and many other essential functions in the plant. In 2020, 44% of the soils sampled across North America tested below critical in K (meaning applying K fertilizer would result in a crop response). Assessing soils for nutrient availability is an important principle of 4R Nutrient Stewardship. The goal of this article is to provide information on the behavior of K in soils and how it influences the assessment of crop K needs.

Semiarid regions in southern Idaho receive a small amount of annual precipitation (e.g., 9–12 inches), and crop options are very limited in dryland farming without supplemental irrigation. To diversify cropping systems, growers can incorporate crops with lower water requirements through rotations and intercropping. Field trials were conducted to evaluate crop yield and soil health in barley–pulse intercrops under full and deficit irrigation with no supplemental N fertilizers.

How are soil health, nutrient cycling, and water dynamics influenced by organic manure and biochar in cover cropping systems? This webinar discusses different management strategies designed to deal with droughty weather and a short growing season, which challenge cover crop integration.

A 3-year study is underway in South Dakota to demonstrate that cover crops combined with organic amendments can be successfully integrated into dry land no-tillage cropping systems. The goals of project are to (1) introduce new management practices to mitigate the effects of moisture stress and build climate resilience in moisture-limited dryland production systems, (2) provide knowledge on alternative cropping system management strategies to improve ecosystem productivity and sustainability, and (3) promote the adoption of cover cropping in these systems, which is currently constrained by limited precipitation and lack of effective techniques to conserve moisture. 

Join us and learn how adding biochar and/or manure to cover cropped fields may help improve soil water holding capacity and soil carbon sequestration while reducing runoff, evaporation, nutrient loss, and greenhouse gas emissions.

Across the U.S., we are withdrawing water far faster than our aquifers are naturally replenished. One of the challenges of determining how much water is left in aquifers is that decline rates are extremely variable over space and time and regulations governing groundwater withdrawal are highly localized. Over the long term, pumping water out of the ground faster than it’s replenished is like deficit spending; it will catch up with you.

A great deal of attention and financial resources are devoted to incentivizing farmers to adopt practices known to protect soil, water, air, and biodiversity. Many commodity groups, including those representing cotton, corn, soybeans, and rice, have set goals and made climate commitments that rely on the uptake and longevity of conservation practices by U.S. producers. Despite these efforts, adoption of two primary practices, cover crops and conservation tillage, remains low. In order for these goals to be met, change is going to have to happen much faster than the current pace.

Black oat is a cool-season annual grass with Mediterranean origin. In contrast to other cool-season grasses, black oat is more heat tolerant and disease resistant, making it an attractive option for the US upper Midwest, since it can be utilized during summer, when there is decreased productivity of cool-season forages due to photorespiration. The objective was to evaluate 10 black oat breeding lines for herbage accumulation, crude protein (CP), neutral detergent fiber (NDF), acid detergent fiber (ADF), and in vitro digestible organic matter (IVDOM) concentrations.

Controlling future phosphorus (P) loss will not be simple. The main nutrient “culprit” in freshwater contamination, P, becomes available only in its dissolved inorganic form in solution; and that solubility is also what can contaminate the environment if the P ends up in the wrong place. This article examines future P loss measures for agricultural systems. Beyond continued vigilance with regards to best management practices (BMPs), future mitigation tools include physical filters of P loss from crop fields, updating P soil-test calibrations, stream buffers, cover crops, biologic products that may alter P availability, enzyme additives, and potential P recycling and trading markets.

Can we reduce phosphorus (P) rates and loss to the environment by banding? The thinking goes that any system that places P fertilizer below the surface without significantly increasing soil erosion will reduce P losses to the environment. Can application rates be reduced? The short answer is “it depends.” Decades of related research have conflicting conclusions. It’s of particular interest due to fertilizer prices and because agriculture is in the hot seat to cut P and nitrogen (N) losses to water bodies. Efficiencies from banding phosphorus (P) do exist in corn at very low soil-test P levels, where cool or wet conditions limit root growth and nutrient uptake, and in soils that make applied P less available.

Cereal rye, as a fall-planted and winter-grown cover crop, offers many benefits. It tolerates both frigid winter temperatures and warm springs. It also tolerates both the wet conditions and drought. It reduces soil erosion, enhances soil organic matter, improves soil water retention, and reduces nutrient leaching. But, it’s not a panacea, of course. This article will discuss some of the benefits, challenges, and considerations of using cereal rye as a cover crop.

Some questions most often asked by producers are, “What is changing in my soil when I adopt a management practice? How can I detect that change? and What does it mean for my yields?” These questions reveal our uncertainty in how we quantify changes in the soil and how we view the soil. More importantly, they give insight into what is important to producers for their operations. The current attention on soil health has revealed that we don’t completely understand how soil changes and what is required to determine what is changed in our soils. The focus of this article will be on what actually happens in the soil along the journey of change in corn and soybean systems in the upper Midwest.

Climate-smart fertilizers will play an increasingly important role. They fit well into the 4R Nutrient Stewardship concept, which provides an excellent framework for recognizing and rewarding the farmers that adopt their use. Programs, protocols, and policies aimed at reducing the carbon footprint of agriculture need to recognize climate-smart fertilizer use in a 4R framework.

Farmers, ranchers, and foresters are facing increasing challenges related to changing climate and weather, manifested in rising average temperatures, more frequent extreme rainfall events, extended drought, and heat waves. These changes are also impacting pest abundance and distribution, creating new pest problems and straining current pest management options and decision-making. Key factors for U.S. agriculture and producer resilience in tackling new environmental and pest challenges lie in the ability of producers to apply effective, economical integrated pest management (IPM) approaches and in support for research and development of new and renewed IPM tactics and systems to meet 21st century needs.

Research has shown the benefits of diversifying crop rotations, yet many Prairie farmers keep their rotations short and simple with cereals and oilseeds or cereals and pulses being intensively grown in two-year rotations. As western Canadian farms are pressed to increase yields while reducing inputs and the environmental impact of food production, growers need help to determine what crop rotations can help them achieve these goals and remain economically viable. This article reports on research evaluating yield and yield stability, nitrogen use efficiency, and net economic returns of six crop rotations in the Southern Prairies, Northern Prairies, and Red River Valley ecozones of western Canada.

As the cost of soybean seed increases, farmers are interested in reducing seeding rates. Variable-rate seeding (VRS) allows farmers to adjust seeding rates within a field by management zone, and many farmers practice VRS in soybean. However, without field validation, the accuracy of existing VRS practices is unknown. The objectives of this study were to: (a) determine the agronomic optimum seeding rate (AOSR) of soybean in predetermined management zones and (b) compare the AOSR to each farmer's standard VRS practice.

Obtaining an adequate plant stand is an important first step towards realizing the yield potential of cotton. The stand establishment phase of crop development involves a number of different processes and can be influenced by multiple factors, some that are within the grower’s control and some that are not. The current article starts with an overview of the germination and emergence phase of cotton development with an emphasis on key developmental events. Thereafter, it focuses on recent research conducted in Georgia that addresses the effects of seed characteristics, temperature conditions, and planter settings on stand establishment.

Understanding the sulfur (S) value of biosolids produced by various processing methods is important for growers who routinely apply biosolids to crop production fields and rely on the S to support optimal plant growth and crop yields. It can be challenging to determine though since S is typically bound in organic and mineral compounds that are either mineralized or dissolved over a period of several months or longer after coming in contact with the soil. The goal of the research described in this article was to determine how processing method and biosolid properties influence S availability and fertilizer value through lab incubation.

New research in Agronomy Journal underscores the importance of residual herbicides in controlling Palmer amaranth in soybeans. The study documented that residuals delayed the critical time of Palmer amaranth removal during seasons that were both wetter and drier than usual. This showed pre-emergence soil-applied residuals can buy producers significant time before post-emergence products may be needed to control weed populations, potentially yielding long-term benefits for herbicide resistance management.

Irrigation has the potential to increase crop yield and financial return on coarse-textured, coastal plain soils in the mid-Atlantic region of the United States. Although the majority of irrigation is delivered through overhead sprinkler irrigation, subsurface drip irrigation (SDI) has been shown to be a reasonable alternative to sprinkler irrigation because of its efficiency on small, irregularly shaped fields. The objective of this paper was to compare the yield and financial return of SDI with those of dryland production over the life of the SDI system (2001–2013).

Onion production in the United States is massive in scale: 3.5 million tons of onions were produced on 130,000 acres and valued at approximately $1 billion, on average, each year from 2018 to 2022. Unfortunately, this highly valuable crop can be threatened by plant pathogenic bacteria that cause a variety of bacterial leaf blights and bulb rots, diseases for which there is no cure. An integrated approach is needed that emphasizes multiple preventative cultural management strategies to reduce the risk posed by onion bacterial diseases.

An American Society of Agronomy webinar sponsored by Verdesian Life Sciences

Carbon farming uses the principles of climate-smart agriculture: increasing productivity, providing resilience to climate change, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. However, to increase soil carbon and reduce greenhouse gases, carbon farming requires no or low soil disturbance, continuous cover, and crop rotation diversity. A final aspect is the intensification of cropping systems. Every aspect of the system should be designed with a purpose. Cropping systems should be selected to meet economic needs, add residue back to the soil, and use perennial crops in the rotation. Cover crops should be selected for root diversity, nitrogen fixation potential, and nutrient recycling. This webinar will focus on methods and opportunities for building cropping systems that are climate resilient and provide environmental benefits.

An American Society of Agronomy and Soil Science Society of America webinar sponsored by Nutrien eKonomics.
Soybean yields are consistently increasing, with some grower yields approaching 100 bushels per acre or more. These high yields lead to greater plant nutrient demands. Legumes, like soybeans, generally meet their nitrogen needs by fixing nitrogen through a symbiotic bacterial relationship in nodules formed on the root structure. However, in high-yield environments, supplemental nitrogen may be required to reach maximum yield. This webinar will explore the concept of supplemental nitrogen fertilization in soybeans.

For the 2021 growing season, we had limited stored soil water and much below-average rainfall across the Northern Great Plains. As a result, crop yields were disastrously lower than normal, and the regional median residual soil nitrate-nitrogen after wheat was two to three times higher than the running average. This drought brings new light (and old memories) to soil testing for nitrogen along with new challenges and opportunities.

In recent years, there have been several new peanut varieties developed that perform exceptionally well across many environments and have improved disease resistance packages. However, growers have been slow to adopt some new varieties due to their excessive vine growth. One potential solution is to use a plant growth regulator to manage the excessive vine growth.

Certified organic food and fiber production is an increasing portion of the U.S. agricultural sector. Expanding production reflects growing consumer demand for these products based on perceived food quality benefits rather than purchases on a unit price basis. While the majority of certified organic products consist of fruits, vegetables, and grains, there is also a demand for organic forage to produce organic meats and dairy products. This article seeks to determine the cost of transitioning from conventional to organic production using perennial and annual forage systems.

A series of Soil Science Society of America webinars produced in partnership with The Soil Health Institute and sponsored by The Walton Family Foundation.

Weighing the costs and benefits of soil health management practices is a primary concern for producers considering the adoption of such practices. However, the economic information needed for making data-driven, science-based decisions is difficult to find. Recognizing that cropping and operating systems, climate, and soils vary, the Soil Health Institute has done extensive research to develop partial budgets to fill the knowledge gap on the economics of soil health systems. Using data from more than 100 corn and soybean production partial budgets from across the United States, this webinar will provide an in-depth analysis of how cover cropping affects expenditures and management practices in reduced tillage systems. It will also discuss details on cover crop seed mixes, planting, and termination strategies.

Data from 100 farmers indicate increased net farm income as a result of adopting soil health practices. Soil health practices are marginal changes from conventional production methods with most seasonal activities and inputs remaining unchanged. Changes in management do require considerations for local soil and climate. Transitioning to soil health systems can be a gradual process, and it may take many years to achieve full benefits of reduced inputs and increased productivity.

Tobacco thrips and tomato spotted wilt (TSW) orthotospovirus can reduce peanut yield. Systemic insecticides are applied in the seed furrow at planting and to peanut foliage to reduce injury from tobacco thrips and decrease incidence of TSW. Research was conducted in Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia to compare the effect of the following treatments on tobacco thrips feeding injury and expression of TSW in peanut: thiamethoxam seed treatment, thiamethoxam seed treatment followed by acephate three weeks after planting, phorate applied in the seed furrow at planting, and a nontreated check.

Elemental sulfur (S) is produced in large quantities in both the U.S. and Canada as a by-product of fossil fuel production. However, this form of S must be oxidized to sulfate (SO42–) by soil microorganisms before crops can utilize it and therefore may not meet crop S requirements in the year of application. Rapid oxidation can be obtained if elemental sulfur particles are less than 20 μm in size and effectively dispersed in soil under favorable moisture and temperature conditions.

Garlic is a widely consumed species used for culinary as well as therapeutic and medicinal purposes. Different compounds within garlic can affect its effectiveness for these purposes, which are also driving factors for the market value. These compounds' availability in the garlic bulbs along with the dry (solid) matter of garlic are affected by environmental factors, which ultimately affect the farmer’s income. How does the environment affect garlic’s quality? What is the suitable environment for producing high quality garlic?  Which quality factors are more sensitive and less sensitive to environmental factors? In this episode, Dr. Cavagnaro discusses his work studying genotypic and environmental effects on garlic quality factors, identifying the genes responsible for quality factors, and developing better cultivars for garlic producing locations.

Soils are the largest organic carbon pool on the land surface, and agricultural soils that have been disturbed by tillage and other practices for many years have lost carbon to the atmosphere. This historical loss, however, means that there is substantial opportunity to increase soil organic carbon (SOC) in agricultural soils by adopting practices that reduce soil disturbance and increase carbon from organic matter.

Agricultural lands play a critical role in ensuring clean water for society and ecosystems throughout the country. Complex weather factors, and the complexity of the biogeochemical cycling of nutrients and the fate and transport of chemicals in the soil, make it particularly challenging to quantify water quality and to attribute changes to any specific cause. Therefore, tracking water quality change is a long-term endeavor. Fortunately, there is ample evidence from research at field and watershed scales that certain agricultural practices retain nutrients and soil in the field and thereby reduce the risk of losing nutrients and chemicals to waterways. This is Part 4: Water Quality.

A Soil Science Society of America webinar partnering with the Soil and Water Conservation Society.

In an increasingly complex world, soils professionals are being called upon to provide interpretations to land developers, property owners, regulators, and policymakers who are trying to solve difficult problems that have serious economic impacts. This puts soils professionals in the position of making determinations that affect not only their own clients, but the environment and public health. Conflicting motivations may encourage some parties to steer soils professionals to conclusions that could benefit one party over another. This webinar will look at several case studies where a soils professional is dealing with these uncertain boundaries and trying to navigate the “gray areas”.

Nutrients are essential for plant and animal agriculture and comprise a large portion of its outputs. The starting point for assuring beneficial impacts is the adaptive management built into 4R Nutrient Stewardship. To manage adaptively means to evaluate impacts in your decision cycle. The metrics you evaluate need to reflect impacts important to your local farming system. Farther-reaching impacts of crop nutrition include water quality, air quality, carbon footprint, biodiversity, food security, human nutrition, farm livelihoods, and circularity. By better documenting the decision cycle, our current and past practices, and their relation to impacts, the industry has the opportunity to build public trust.

Because of growth in the craft brewing industry, farmers in the eastern United States are planting winter malting barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) to meet demands for locally sourced grain. However, given that barley is a relatively new crop in this region, basic agronomic information relating to stand assessment is needed. This is particularly relevant in this region, as climatic variability from extreme temperature fluctuations during the winter and spring can reduce a barley stand, creating the need for farmers to estimate grain yield potential. The objective of the research was to evaluate the relationship between spring stem counts, fractional green canopy cover (FGCC), and normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) and barley grain yield.

An American Society of Agronomy and Soil Science Society of America webinar sponsored by Smart Nutrition MAP+MST

Sulfur supplementation has recently received greater interest from the crop production community. The growing desire to supplement sulfur is driven by decreased sulfur deposition from rainfall, increased yields for multiple crops, and lower sulfur content in phosphorus-containing fertilizers. Traditionally there have been only a few sulfur sources that producers have relied upon for their sulfur fertilization needs. Today there are more options available to farmers. This webinar will explore these options and compare new and traditional sulfur products.

This episode, we’ll talk with Sara about why fieldwork is important, questions you need to consider before starting, and how to stay safe out in field.

Diverting organic materials and food waste from landfills and recycling them for beneficial use in agriculture is a great way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. However, intermingled microplastics from packaging and other sources could make these recycled materials less beneficial than they otherwise might be. This episode, Kate and Eric discuss their review paper studying the prevalence of these contaminants, how they’re measured, and how these results intertwine with current policy efforts.

Faced with the daunting task of herbicide resistance management, Australian farmers developed various systems to target weed seeds during crop harvest. These systems are collectively called harvest weed seed control (HWSC). Despite being relatively unheard of in the U.S., currently more than 80% of Australian farmers practice HWSC. This article provides an overview of the six HWSC systems and the research conducted to date in U.S. cropping systems. This article also includes information for implementing HWSC, what weeds to target, potential costs, and where to find equipment.

In 2021, in the Corn Belt, rising corn prices fueled producer willingness to make “insurance” fungicide applications to hedge against possible yield losses from foliar disease. Newer disease risks—especially tar spot—also spurred some producers toward a more aggressive spray program. Market realities mean that “insurance” fungicide applications are likely to continue in 2022. But crop costs and returns will change, and CCAs should help their producers keep in mind corn fungicide fundamentals—even when sky-high prices may impact decision-making more than disease management fundamentals.

Weeds have evolved quicker than our ways to eradicate them with 264 species of weeds worldwide developing resistance to herbicides. Genetic weed control is one option being looked at by researchers. There are a number of hurdles to overcome before this approach could be used, including ethical, regulatory, and ecological challenges, but it is an area of research that may be worth pursuing.

Grasslands and perennial forages across western Canada have revenue streams that are limited to forage production and stock themselves, but they also play a critical role in carbon (C) sequestration. We’ll discuss how specialized grazing systems can alter grassland function, forage production, water infiltration, soil microbial properties, and, ultimately, soil C storage.

A limited series of American Society of Agronomy and Soil Science Society of America webinars produced with the support of American Farmland Trust, American Soybean Association, United Soybean Board, and The Nature Conservancy.

Carbon markets have been proposed as a viable avenue by which to provide economic benefits to farmers while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Yet, to date, few farmers have signed up for these markets. This webinar will discuss carbon markets utilizing a panel of four growers with first-hand experience in this area. These growers will discuss how they weighed the costs and benefits of management changes, records requirements, and general uncertainties in the rapidly-evolving carbon marketplace. By the end of this webinar, farmers, farm advisers, and market developers will gain valuable insights into why farmers are, or are not, signing up for carbon markets.

Washington State University researchers have been exploring the feasibility of growing quinoa in the Pacific Northwest. In their effort to develop new varieties adapted to Washington State, they focused on key traits for improvement and are close to releasing their first varieties that address and improve upon one or more of these characteristics. A new crop to most farmers in Washington, quinoa presents significant production challenges, particularly with susceptibility to heat in the central and eastern parts of the state, susceptibility to pre-harvest sprouting due to early rains in western Washington, and susceptibility to weed pressure almost everywhere.

Hypoxia in the Gulf of Mexico is an environmental issue connected to agricultural crop management in the Mississippi River watershed. Programs to improve nutrient stewardship in this watershed aim to improve nutrient use efficiency and reduce losses of nitrogen and phosphorus. Trends since the 1980s show increases in both crop production and the size of the hypoxic zone while the trends in nitrogen surplus have neither increased nor decreased. Provisional flow-normalized river loads of nitrogen are decreasing. While improvements in adoption of 4R management of applied fertilizers and manures have been noted, opportunities for improvement also remain. While 4R practices will not solve the issue on their own, they can make an important contribution when integrated with soil conservation practices and changes to whole farming systems.

Flue-cured tobacco is the most valuable crop produced in North Carolina. It is susceptible to glufosinate, yet it is commonly grown in close proximity to crops that are tolerant to the herbicide. Although field trials found simulated glufosinate drift onto flue-cured tobacco significantly reduced per-acre yields, it did not affect the crop’s per-acre value. Nevertheless, growers and applicators should strive to minimize drift, which starts with reading, understanding, and following product labels.

For example, agronomists, crop breeders, and agrochemical companies rely on precise and accurate statistical data to evaluate methods and technologies and gauge product performance in research and on-farm field trials. Field trials and plot-level statistics make agriculture efficient, profitable, and sustainable, ensuring that new products are proven to work. Scientific evidence is crucial for insuring effective agricultural techniques are developed for and adopted by the mass market. In this webinar, speakers from academia and industry will share how drone mapping can be used for field trial management and statistical analyses. This will be done using one of the oldest experimental fields in the United States—Sanborn Field.

More and more farmers these days are putting regenerative practices into place on the land they own for the long-term sustainability of their operations. But what happens farmland that is rented out? Many of the practices behind regenerative agriculture like building soil health and biodiversity and limiting the need for external inputs, provide benefits that are seen over time and not necessarily year to year. Renters often lack the leverage with the landowner to put regenerative practices into action.

The 4R nutrient stewardship framework has brought us closer to improving our nutrient use efficiency. However, given the inherent “leakiness” of the N cycle, it is challenging to increase N use efficiency to optimum levels. Newer fertilizer technologies, like enhanced-efficiency fertilizers (EEFs), are tools that can help achieve this goal. To determine if EEFs should be incorporated into nutrient management programs, growers and crop advisers should consider the various types of EEFs available, their functions within the soil, and the timing of application relative to the crop’s nutrient uptake demand.
