In this member video, Kelly Garrett discusses two critical corn trials he conducted this season, focusing on sustainable agriculture practices and efficient use of nitrogen in farming:

  1. Nitrogen Stabilizer Trial: This trial compared two different nitrogen stabilizers (N-Serve vs. MaintaiN Elite) to assess which one yields a higher return on investment (ROI). The objective was to identify a product that not only enhances crop yield but is also good for preserving soil biology.

  2. Anhydrous Nitrogen Application Trial: The second trial explored varying amounts of anhydrous nitrogen application – 60, 120, 180, and 240 pounds – to determine the optimal quantity for the best ROI. This trial aimed to challenge the conventional practices regarding nitrogen use in farming.

As a result of these findings, he plans to modify his nitrogen application strategy for the next farming season, aiming for more sustainable and efficient use of resources.
