FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Corn Nitrogen Management and Biological Products’ Plot Field Day Being Held
(Lena) Corn producers and agronomists are invited to attend a field day being held Oct. 13 to learn more about nitrogen management and biological products’ applicability in corn production. The event is being held at the research plots at the intersection of Larmey Lane and Hogsback Road in the Town of Little River, from 10 a.m. to noon on Thursday, October 13.
The plots located there are testing the effects on corn yield of differing nitrogen rates, with and without two different bacterial products designed to enhance corn plant nitrogen uptake. This site is one of five locations housing the same research project in the region. Discussion will focus on setting the right nitrogen rate for various corn growing situations, ‘do biological products work in our area?’, and the impacts of weed competition on nutrient dynamics and management. A general corn and soy management question and answer session will take place at the end of the event, as well.
Presenters include UW-Madison personnel Jamie Patton, Sr. Outreach Specialist with the Nutrient & Pest Management Program; and Scott Reuss, Regional Crops/Soils Educator with the Division of Extension. Attendees are asked to park on Larmey Lane, use 9073 Hogsback Road, Lena, WI 54139 if using a map app.
The field day is free for all to attend, and Certified Crop Advisor Continuing Education Credits have been applied for this event. If you have questions about the event, contact Reuss by e-mailing to firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 715-732-7510. Thank you to host farm Aaron Behnke for conducting these plots and hosting the event.
