June 10th Webinar Focuses on In-season Nitrogen Application

As many producers are getting ready to side-dress corn, the agronomic crops team will host a free webinar on June 10th focused on important considerations and practices to achieve the efficient application of nitrogen. The webinar will be the first session of a new series called  CORN Live which will be offered throughout the growing season to address timely issues related to agronomic crop production and management as they emerge.

Guest speakers for this week’s CORN Live session include Nathan Douridas, Farm Manager at the Farm Science Review (FSR), and John Fulton, Professor and OSU Extension Specialist in Food, Agricultural and Environmental Engineering. Douridas will discuss the overall nitrogen plan at FSR and discuss the technology, equipment and tools utilizing at FSR to manage nitrogen in the field. He will also give an update on crop progress at FSR. Fulton will discuss field trials on nitrogen rate, and placement in corn and how his research can be used to refine nitrogen application decisions on farms in Ohio.
