Summary

Corn

  • Carved in stone rules for N?
  • Starter fertilizer — if I put down dry 2×2 at planting, should I put liquid in furrow? What about phos-availability products?

Wheat

  • Two of the same crop in a row = 10% to 15% yield loss in the second year
  • Wheat is protein. Remember this! Because protein requires N.

Cover Crops

  • Tips for red clover on spring wheat
  • Singe cut vs. double cut planted in the fall vs. spring planting — what’s the difference?
  • Selling cover crops as hay — don’t give away your nutrients!
