Optimization of N-fertilization to winter wheat with the help of digital tools

Optimization of N-fertilization to winter wheat with the help of digital tools

How can nitrogen fertilization to winter wheat be optimized with the help of digital tools? This question is the subject of the interactive presentation by Dr. Martin Schneider, Head of Product Management at Agricon. The presentation was recorded at this year's agricultural conference in Bernburg (Saxony-Anhalt). The application of our digital nitrogen fertilization method in the entire vegetation process is presented.
