Undecayed corn stalks and other plant residue can lead to disease and insect infestations, soils slow to warm in the spring, volunteer corn and challenges for planting equipment and seedling emergence. And while residue provides protection to soils, it’s a source of valuable nutrients to the following crop when released properly.
Doug Miller, an agronomist and president of Midwest Bio-Tech in Erie, Ill., will review the role of temperature, moisture and nitrogen in the decay process. He will share the pros and cons of various methods used to accelerate residue breakdown, including machinery, cover crops, fertilizer and biological additives.
