Corn School: Measuring nitrogen volatilization loss in the field


Information, knowledge, and data can be paramount when maximizing yield potential, and when talking about utilizing fertilizer to its highest potential, accurately measuring nitrogen loss can translate to net dollars at the end of the year.

On this Corn School episode, we talk about how measuring nitrogen volatilization is the first step in determining how much N is actually available for the plant to use.

In this episode, Josh Nasielski, University of Guelph researcher, Dr. Jinwook Kim, University of Guelph crop physiologist and Jongwon Kang, University of Guelph graduate student explain how to make your own tool to measure N volatilization along with the steps involved to accurately record the data to make educated decisions on nitrogen loss.
