Twilight Field Tour – August 16, 2022

The Virginia No-Till Alliance is sponsoring a Field Plot tour Tuesday, August 16th.  A sidedress nitrogen rate study was applied to a corn field in late June.  The recommended nitrogen rate based on the PSNT was 100 pounds nitrogen per acre.  A half rate of nitrogen and no nitrogen strips were included for comparison.  The field tour will begin with dinner at the Sangerville Church of the Brethren picnic shelter at 6:00 pm (26 Vance Road, Bridgewater, VA).  Please RSVP to Doug Horn ( or 540/245-5750) if you would like to attend.

The zero sidedress nitrogen plots were already beginning to show in this drone shot 2 1/2 weeks after the N application
