Several Project SENSE update sessions planned

Lincoln—Project SENSE update sessions are planned for several locations across Nebraska.

Growers will learn how to outfit and implement the project’s nitrogen management strategy on their operations. Project SENSE (Sensors for Efficient Nitrogen Use and Stewardship of the Environment) focuses on improving the efficiency of nitrogen fertilizer use.

Strategies that direct crop nitrogen status at early growth stages are a promising way to improve nitrogen fertilizer efficiency and improve groundwater nitrate levels.

Growers will see a live demonstration of the project’s high-clearance nitrogen applicator, outfitted with active crop canopy sensors.

Attendees will learn how producers are conducting research trials on their own fields in partnership with the Project SENSE team.

Update sessions will take place on the following days:

July 27—10 a.m. to noon: Arnie Hinkson farm, 2003 N. Cameron Road, Cairo

July 29—11 a.m. to 1 p.m.: Cole Anderson farm, 3730 Denton Road, Beaver Crossing

Aug. 1—11 a.m. to 1 p.m.: Bailey’s Ag Supply, 548 Road 14, Schuyler

Aug. 3—11 a.m. to 1 p.m.: Duncan Fire Hall, Duncan

Lunch will be provided. Pre-registration is due two days in advance for meal-planning purposes.
