Registration has begun for the Cornell Adapt-N Intensive Workshop by Webinar: Precision Nitrogen Management in Corn Using the Adapt-N Tool
- The webinar will take place on Thursday, March 21, 2012
- 10:30 am – 3:00pm Eastern Time; 9:30am 2:00 pm, Central Time
- Broadcast to Multiple Host Locations in the Northeast and Midwest

Weather-adjusted N recommendations provided by Adapt-N in 2011 and 2012 strip trials increased profits over current grower practice (~ $25/acre in New York and Iowa) and decreased N use and losses.
We will provide a half-day advanced and interactive workshop on Precision Nitrogen Management using the Adapt-N tool. A brief discussion of the basics will review N dynamics, concerns, and management tools in corn systems, and how weather, especially spring rainfall, impacts corn N management in humid regions.
We will then take an in-depth look at Adapt-N, the web-based tool that is successfully providing weather-adaptive N fertilizer recommendations. The tool uses a dynamic simulation model, high-resolution climate data and location-specific inputs by users through a web interface, which will continue to be available at no charge during the 2013 growing season, thanks to continued funding.
- Learn how the tool works, how it fared in dozens of on-farm trials in 2011 and 2012
- Get hands-on experience using the tool
- Test the 2013 version of Adapt-N and share your feedback with the development team
- 3.5 CCA credits in Nutrient Management will be offered
The webinar and the current Adapt-N interface are provided FREE of charge, supported through funds from a USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service Conservation Innovation Grant, USDA-NIFA Agriculture and Food Research Initiative, Hatch-Smith Lever Funds, New York Farm Viability Institute, the Northern New York Agricultural Development Program, the International Plant Nutrition Institute, and the Walton Family Foundation.
