Listenting to the Experts

Hoping to learn more about what keeps growers from using in-season applications of nitrogen (sidedress N), we've engaged some folks on the AgTalk forum. A first post asked simply to hear about growers' experiences with sidedressing. This sparked a great conversation with more than a dozen growers. Largely enthusiasts of sidedressing, we posted a second query: Why aren't more acres of corn sidedressed? This second post led to quite a debate over the role of robotic vehicles in agriculture. Worth a read!
