In fact, they absorb 27% more total N from the soil after flowering than hybrids grown between 1950 and 1990, says a newly released Purdue study. Today’s hybrids absorb more grain-N during grain fill, as opposed to N being remobilized from plant leaves and stems. The higher amount and duration of N uptake contributed to better grain yields, even as actual grain N concentrations decline; hybrids are much more efficient. But as corn plants increase N use, they increase their uptake of other nutrients.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://cornandsoybeandigest.com/corn/nitrogen-efficiency-application-timing-increase-corn-yields" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://cornandsoybeandigest.com/corn/nitrogen-efficiency-application-timing-increase-corn-yields#comments Corn Fertilizer Corn Mon, 22 Apr 2013 20:29:00 +0000 77462 at http://cornandsoybeandigest.com Nearly One-Fifth of U.S. Corn Crop Harvested http://cornandsoybeandigest.com/blog/nearly-one-fifth-us-corn-crop-harvested <div class="node-body blog-body">The U.S. corn harvest remained ahead of schedule next week even though cooler, wetter weather limited harvest progress in the western Corn Belt and some producers switched to cutting soybeans.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://cornandsoybeandigest.com/blog/nearly-one-fifth-us-corn-crop-harvested" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://cornandsoybeandigest.com/blog/nearly-one-fifth-us-corn-crop-harvested#comments Corn Corn Tue, 21 Sep 2010 04:00:00 +0000 47015 at http://cornandsoybeandigest.com Rain Slows Harvest in Upper Midwest http://cornandsoybeandigest.com/blog/rain-slows-harvest-upper-midwest <div class="node-body blog-body">Frequent rainfall events in the past few weeks across most areas of southern Minnesota and northern Iowa have made many fields very wet at the start of the 2010 fall harvest season.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://cornandsoybeandigest.com/blog/rain-slows-harvest-upper-midwest" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://cornandsoybeandigest.com/blog/rain-slows-harvest-upper-midwest#comments Corn Corn Tue, 21 Sep 2010 04:00:00 +0000 47016 at http://cornandsoybeandigest.com All Aboard Wheat Harvest Tour http://cornandsoybeandigest.com/all-aboard-wheat-harvest-tour <div class="field-byline"> Larry Stalcup </div> <div class="node-body article-body">This is Jenna Zeorian’s 20th summer on the road.
