In this episode of the Nutrient Management Podcast, four U of M researchers discuss irrigation and nutrient management.
  • What is deficit irrigation and could there be an important role for it this year if it stays dry?
  • What's the best approach to nitrogen fertilization in irrigated corn, and what should farmers keep in mind when applying N in irrigated fields?
  • Is there an advantage to using fertigation over traditional fertilizer applications?
  • What should growers know about variable rate irrigation and variable rate fertigation?
Thank you to Minnesota's Agricultural Fertilizer Research and Education Council (AFREC) for supporting the podcast.
