Nitrogen Use Efficiency - Why Should We Care?

Measuring what comes off the fields is pretty straightforward, but the amount of nitrogen applied and the amount that is available to the plants can be tricky to determine. So how can you maximize the amount of produce you get for the amount of nitrogen fertilizer applied (aka NUE)? And why should we care?

In this podcast, Yara North America's Director of Agronomic Services Dr. Robb Mikkelsen, helps us understand

  • The concept of nitrogen use efficiency (NUE)
  • The difference between maximizing and optimizing NUE
  • How to measure NUE
  • Some practical measures that can be done to monitor NUE
  • How an individual grower can improve their NUE
  • The consequences of failing to improve NUE
