Cornstalk Testing to Evaluate Nitrogen Management

By A. M. Blackmer and A. P. Mallarino


Recent studies have shown that the nitrogen (N) status of a corn crop can be assessed by measuring nitrate concentrations in the lower portion of cornstalks at the end of the growing season. This finding Jed to the development of a new tissue test that can be used to evaluate N management practices used in any field in any year. The test is called the end-of-season cornstalk test . This pamphlet describes the test and how it should be used
