Follow along with this podcast by downloading the PDF presentation where Alison Vogel shares her advice in managing excessive residue for those no-tilling continuous corn.
Dealing with excessive residue can be a problem for many growers who are no-tilling continuous corn or working with other high-volume residue situations, such as increased planting populations or crops that produce greater-than-average yields.
In these situations, accelerating residue degradation and nutrient cycling is necessary to maximize yield potential, and synchronizing the release of nutrients tied up in residue to current crop demand is the key, says Alison Vogel.
The crop physiology research assistant at the University of Illinois will start us off by talking about the three primary factors that cause corn-on-corn yield penalties and why it’s important for growers to consider the agronomic and yield impact of not managing corn residue properly. She’ll also share study results from different mechanical management systems to manage corn residue in the field.
