Nutrient Trials
Using Sea Lettuce as a soil amendment in Potato Production; and reduced fertility trial  

Research performed on the farm of Jeff and Jason Smallman in O'Leary explored the use of sea letuce as a soil amendment in potato production. Research was performed with the assistance of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada Science and Technology Branch, under the management of Roger Henry. Research was also performed on reduced synthetic fertilizer usage to see how the potato crop would perform.

Nutrient Management Planning and Liquid Manure Injection - Silage Corn On-farm Trials  

Liquid Manure Injection involves injecting liquid hog or dairy manure directly into the soil with a standard liquid manure tanker equipped with a full tillage manure injector. This practice has potential to increase crop yields, reduce input costs and benefit the environment.

Nutrient Management Planning - On-farm Potato Grain Hay Trials  

A Nutrient Management Plan (NMP) is a document that describes the production practices that a farm manager currently uses and/or will implement to sustain livestock and/or crop production in a manner that is both environmentally and economically sound.

Nitrogen Management for Corn: General Fertilizer Recommendations  

Sound nitrogen management for corn makes good economic sense. Optimal nitrogen fertilization is essential for achieving a successful, high yielding corn crop. Inadequate nitrogen inputs result in loss of silage or grain yield. Excessive nitrogen inputs reduce profitability and can delay maturity for grain corn. Applying the optimal fertilizer nitrogen rate achieves good crop yield and results in maximum economic return.

Nitrogen Management for Corn: Pre-Sidedress Soil Nitrate Test (PSNT)  

The Pre-sidedress Soil Nitrate Test (PSNT) can be used to improve fertilizer nitrogen recommendations for silage or grain corn production. The factsheet Nitrogen Management for Corn: General Fertilizer Recommendations can be used to estimate the corn fertilizer nitrogen requirement using average values for manure, crop and soil nitrogen credits. However, the actual nitrogen benefits from these sources can vary from field-to-field and year-to-year. The PSNT uses a soil sample taken when the corn is at the six-leaf stage (about 8 to 10" high) to decide how much sidedress nitrogen fertilizer to apply on an individual field. This factsheet outlines preliminary recommendations for fertilizer nitrogen management for corn based on the PSNT.
