AE487: Agricultural Management Options for Climate Variability and Change: Sensor-Based, Variable-Rate Nitrogen Management

Figure 2. Seed cotton yields are very similar between sensor-based and typical N applications across a field experiment at Clemson University. Sensor-based N application reduced the amount of applied N by nearly 50%. All treatments received 30 lb/acre at planting; additional N rates at side-dress are shown in the figure.
