A Project SENSE lunch and learn session is planned for Friday, Aug. 4, in Hebron, NE. Growers will learn how to outfit and implement the project’s nitrogen management strategy on their operations. Project SENSE (Sensors for Efficient Nitrogen Use and Stewardship of the Environment) focuses on improving the efficiency of nitrogen fertilizer use.

Strategies which detect crop nitrogen status at early growth stages are a promising way to improve nitrogen fertilizerefficiency and improve groundwater nitrate levels. Growers will see a live demonstration of the project’s high clearance nitrogen applicator outfitted with active crop canopy sensors and will see the high tech sensors in action. Results from the prior two years will be shared.
