High Yield Corn Systems

Management Practices for Achieving High Corn Yields

Dr. Dobermann will summarize results of an interdisciplinary long-term research program on understanding corn and soybean yield potential and developing management strategies for acheiving it. He will also demonstrate the use of the Hybrid-Maize model for quantifying site yield potential and fine-tuning of crop and fertilizer management to achieve high yields and high nitrogen use efficiency.
