This DEKALB® variety is a good example of N efficiency in seed. FBN members in South Dakota, have anonymously contributed 77,427 acres of yield and nitrogen application data. The chart above shows that as a group, they achieved their highest yields from applying between 145.8 and 161.6 lbs of N per acre for DKC 48-12.
Or consider this AGRIPRO® wheat variety. FBN members, reporting on more than 30,000 acres across several states have achieved their highest yields applying between 126.4 and 150.2 lbs of N per acre for SY SOREN. This is national information, and a good place to start when considering your N rate. From here, you can drill down on your specific soil type, conditions, and rotations right in your FBN account. What you learn can be taken into account when considering your EONR. If, for example, your calculated EONR is 170-190 lbs/A and you’ve planted SY SOREN, you may feel more confident applying at the low end of your EONR range, saving money on N that may have otherwise been wasted without risking your yield potential.
Combining Nitrogen and Seed analysis enables a never-before available analysis of hybrid-nutrient response. Using FBN Seed Finder, you can specify your region, soil texture, crop rotation, drainage, irrigation and other factors to personalize the N analytics you see and determine optimal fertility practices on each field. Combined with FBN Analytics on seed and input prices, N analytics help you get to a true “price-to-performance” assessment of your input plans.
