2021 Orthman Research Yield Book


Corn Side-Dress Trial This trial was designed to demonstrate the importance of nitrogen management and how varying side-dress amounts can change yields. On June 14 th during the hilling and side-dress application we varied the amount of side-dress applied from 0 to 125% of planned in replicated strips in the field. For ease of application we did this in 7 gal/ac increments. In mid-July leaf area index measurements were taken to predict the yield potential from each treatment.
