Translating research findings into practice
It can be challenging for researchers to make recommendations about nitrogen fertilization rates to practitioners or for practitioners to determine optimal nitrogen fertilization rates from the literature. This is because results are often specific to a site or influenced by annual weather patterns. Using a meta-analysis approach, researchers have determined what variables are most important for determining nitrogen uptake by corn and built a model that can make individualized recommendations of nitrogen fertilization rate to farmers. With this site-specific information, farmers can avoid over- or underapplying nitrogen, which can lead to increased profits and decreased nitrogen runoff into local watersheds.
