Area Soybean Farmers May Opt to Participate in Nitrogen Project

The Iowa Soybean Association (ISA) is asking area farmers to participate in a Nitrogen Fine Tuning project. It involves establishment of a strip trial comparing an Iowa State University modeled nitrogen rate versus the farmer’s standard practice. ISA On-Farm Network director Scott Nelson says it’s a simple, low-cost project that could result in significant savings.

The project should also contribute to water quality improvement. Nelson says there’s a relationship between nitrogen rate and loss through tile lines.
