September 2 | Long-Term Impacts of 4R Nitrogen Management Practices and Cover Crops on Nitrate-N Loss
The 4Rs of nitrogen management are right source, right rate, right time, and right place. Right source refers to using the correct fertilizer for the soil and crop needs, right rate means that the application rate matches the crop requirements, right time means ensuring that nitrogen is available when the crop needs it, and right place refers to placing and keeping nitrogen where the crop can get to it. Matt Helmers, Director of the Iowa Nutrient Research Center, will explain the long-term impacts of using nitrogen management practices, as well as the use of cover crops, on nitrate-N loss from agricultural systems.
