Author(s) Abby Augarten, Amber Radatz, Matt Ruark, Erica Olson.

Calculating NUE (nitrogen use efficiency) can be relatively simple and offers insight into how N management can be altered in order to achieve economically optimum yields while reducing nutrient losses to the environment (12 pages; 2019).

In this guide you will find:

  1. Things to consider when selecting NUE fields
  2. How to set up a zero-N plot
  3. Soil sampling requirements and recommendations
  4. Best management practices for calibrating your yield monitor and
  5. Data collection and analysis responsibilities
