Throughout the winter meeting season, Stewart touted a split application approach to nitrogen. He recommends growers put down 100 lb of nitrogen pre-plant and then wait for a signal from Mother Nature to determine how much nitrogen should be applied as a side-dress. Depending on weather, growing conditions and yield expectations, Stewart shares strategies that call for no additional nitrogen — 50 lb, or up to 70 and even 80 lb.
Stewart also shares tips on the role rotation plays in nitrogen rates, side-dress timing and whether you can get bang for your buck when applying late-season nitrogen in waist- or chest-high corn.
