GREATER-THAN-ADDITIVE MANAGEMENT EFFECTS KEY IN REDUCING CORN YIELD GAPS

Apr, 02, 2015

While many recent studies have documented that agricultural producers must significantly increase yields in order to meet the food, feed, and fuel demands of a growing population, few have given practical solutions on how to do this. Crop science researchers at the University of Illinois interested in determining and reducing corn yield gaps are addressing this important issue by taking a systematic approach to the problem. Dr. Laura Gentry, IL Corn's Director of Water Quality Research participated in one such study before coming on staff at IL Corn. In this audio update, Gentry explains the results of the research.
