Variable Rate Nitrogen Application: Eric Odberg (Farmer-to-Farmer Case Study Series)
September 30, 2016
Eric Odberg farms near Genesee, Idaho, in an area receiving about 22 inches of precipitation annually. In this 2016 publication, the fourth-generation cereal-based farmer discusses his experiences with variable rate nitrogen application and direct seeding. Part of the Farmer-to-Farmer Case Study Project, which explores innovative approaches regional farmers are using to increase resilience amid climate change, testimony like Odberg's provides more information and feedback about precision agriculture that can help you to decide whether or not the approach is a viable option for your operation.
