Learn more about this on-farm research project at upcoming demonstration days.

PROJECT SENSE (Sensors for Efficient Nitrogen Use and Stewardship of the Environment) focuses on improving the efficiency of nitrogen fertilizer use. Nebraska Extension is working directly with producers in conducting research trials on their own fields.

PROJECT SENSE is a collaborative effort between the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the Nebraska Corn Board, five Natural Resources Districts (NRDs) in Nebraska, and producers participating in the Nebraska On-Farm Research Network.

Growers in attendance will see a live demonstration of a group applicator outfitted with crop canopy sensors, and how they can improve nitrogen use efficiency. Strategies which direct crop nitrogen status at early growth stages are a promising way to improve
nitrogen fertilizer efficiency and improve groundwater nitrate levels.
