Nitrogen (N) management in small grains has recently managed to capture more attention than usual due to the high cost of N fertilizers. Several researchers from UC and UCCE have been working on projects that can provide growers with some valuable information on various N management options.
Join us next month (Tuesday April 18, 2023, previously March 22, 2023, rescheduled due to wet field conditions) from 8:40 until 10:30 for some quick updates on research. The field site is an experimental trial run by Cameron Pittelkow evaluating the use of digestate and hydrolysate as a N source in small grains.
