If I seed a hairy vetch cover crop this fall and end up with a nice thick stand, what percentage of nitrogen (N) can it provide next year for an average 200-bushel per acre corn crop?

A: According to the literature, corn has been found to recover 17-32% of hairy vetch residue N. The literature also states that you need more than 1,000 pounds per acre of above ground biomass for the potential of a sufficient N credit. The no-tiller would have to be patient in the spring to capture this amount.

Precision on No-Till Shows Promise

A sensor-based approach to nitrogen dispersal beat out a granular recommendation approach. However, a farmer's split-N application with variable rate beat them both at the efficiency game in a University of Nebraska-Lincoln-directed trial, though it was close.
