Predicting Nitrogen Availability from Organic Amendments: laboratory, Field, and Computer Stimulation
A study to improve the ability to predict nitrogen availability from organic soil amendments, including improved accuracy of Nitrogen availability estimates, to target amendment application rates to meet crop N needs.
Most Christmas tree growers fertilize with nitrogen (N) intending to improve tree color, growth, and ultimately value. Where does the fertilizer go after application? How much is actually taken up by the trees, stored in the soil or lost to the environment? How much N is removed at harvest? Should growers be concerned about depletion of soil N reserves from repeated ...
Cover crops are used by many farmers, but very few know how much nitrogen (N) or dry matter they are getting from their cover crops. There are some methods in the literature for estimating cover crop contributions. We are evaluating these methods in on-farm WSARE-funded trials in the Northern Willamette Valley to find the most practical and accurate method for use on ...
