Olga S. Walsh | 2016

The purpose of this publication is to improve growers’ knowledge and understanding of how crop canopy sensors and in-field reference strips can be utilized for effective nitrogen (N) management. The overall goal is to improve the use efficiency of N fertilizer resources and increase producers’ competiveness and sustainability. The publication provides information about how crop sensors work, their benefits, and proper methodology for use and gives examples from growers who succeeded in incorporating sensors into their nutrient management decisions.
