Nutrient Management in Corn Production
The following Cornell University agronomy fact sheets were developed during a 2009 SARE grant to help farmers and educators better evaluate nutrient cycling in corn production, thereby equipping them with information to make improved whole-farm management decisions:
- Illinois Soil Nitrogen Test for Corn, fact sheet 36
- Fine-Tuning Nitrogen Use on Corn, fact sheet 63
- Adaptive Nutrient Management Process, fact sheet 69
- Measuring Corn Silage Yield, fact sheet 71
- Taking a Corn Stalk Nitrate Test Sample After Corn Silage Harvest, fact sheet 72
Visit Cornell University's Nutrient Management Spear Program for a complete list of more than 70 fact sheets on nutrient management.
A Whole-Farm Nutrient Balance Calculator is also available.
