Congrats Jordon Wade on publishing expansive soil health study!

June 12, 2020

Former Culman lab PhD student and postdoc, Dr. Jordon Wade just published an important study to help validate some important assumptions we hold about the value of soil health in agriculture. Jordon aggregated research corn N rate trials across the Midwest to ask the question "do improvements in soil health translate into increases in yield?". The answer is a pretty straightforward yes. Increases in soil health can help mitigate the risk of underfertilizing with N. So farmers that improve their soil health can decrease their N applications without too much fear of yield losses due to N availability. Read the paper here.
