Webinar Description: 
Would you like to better understand and predict the optimum nitrogen fertilizer rates within and across your fields? Nitrogen fertilizer is among the most critical inputs to crop production – and one of the costliest. When applied at the optimum rate, nitrogen boosts productivity and profitability and avoids the environmental costs of excess application. However, finding the optimum application rate can be a challenge: it can vary by more than 100% from field-to-field and year-to-year. Join Zach Brummer and the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation as they host Dr. Michael Castellano (Iowa State University Professor and Lead, Iowa Nitrogen Initiative) and Melissa Miller (Project Director, Iowa Nitrogen Initiative) to discuss the project, their findings, and how your operation can participate and benefit from the work being done!
