As a reminder, on Tuesday, December 4, 2018 from 11 am – 12 pm Central, 12 pm – 1 pm Eastern, the American Society of Agronomy (ASA) will provide a corn nitrogen (N) use efficiency webinar sponsored by Verdesian Life Sciences.
This live educational webinar will be presented by Dr. Fred Below, a professor of Crop Physiology at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, and Brad Bernhard, a research specialist and Ph.D. student under the advisement of Dr. Below and will focus on N use efficiency best practices for corn and will provide participants with:
- An understanding of the N uptake patterns of modern corn hybrids,
- A research-based review of fertilization technologies that provide N at the right time and in the right place (e.g., Y-drop technology, side-dressing tools, nitrification inhibitors),
- An examination of the impacts of different N fertilizer sources on corn N use and productivity.
Certified Crop Advisers (CCA) and Certified Professional Agronomists (CPAg) will receive one (1) continuing education unit (CEU) in nutrient management for participating. Sponsored by Verdesian Life Sciences, the webinar is free to all those who register online.
