MULTI–YEAR SUMMARY OF CORN RESPONSE TO NITROGEN FERTILIZER This report summarizes corn yield response to fertilizer nitrogen (N) rate in field–scale trials conducted around the state of Indiana since 2006. These results are applicable to N management programs that use efficient methods and timings of N fertilizer application. The Agronomic Optimum N Rate (AONR) represents the total amount of fertilizer N (including starter N) required to maximize yield, but not necessarily profit. The AONR in these trials varied among regions of the state from about 211 to 254 lbs N / ac, depending partly on soil organic matter and soil drainage characteristics. At five Purdue Ag. Centers where we conducted paired trials of corn following soybean (corn/soy) and corn following corn (corn/corn) from 2007 to 2010, the average AONR for corn/corn was 44 lbs greater than for corn/soy while average corn/corn yields were 18 bu / ac less than the[Read More…]
