On the first CropsTV Soil and Water Wednesday, join John Sawyer, ISU associate professor and extension soil fertility specialist, to get an update on nitrogen use when integrating cereal rye production into a corn-soybean rotation. Cereal rye is a valuable tool for reducing nitrate loss to water systems, but it also has potential to be a viable cash grain crop for some farmers. John will outline how nitrogen input and response is critical for optimal rye productivity and the impact rye has on corn in the rotation.
Thursday, December 3 at 9:00 a.m.
Join Chad Hart, ISU professor and extension economist, to explore the many twists and turns of the ag markets in 2020. In this entertaining and informative episode, we’ll also discuss what is coming for 2021 and have plenty of time for Q&A at the end!
