How do I edit the soil nitrogen depth for modeling?
The default modeling depth of 24 inches is acceptable for most well-drained, silt-loam soils in the Midwest. For some loam or sandy loam soils, a depth of 36 inches or 48 inches might be better for nitrogen modeling. Poorly drained clay or silt loam soils with clay pans should typically use a depth of 12 inches, but in some situations, 24 inches is also desirable. Excessively drained and irrigated sands should use a modeling depth of 60 or 72 inches.
For more information, see the agronomy article about selecting the correct soil nitrogen modeling depth.
Note: The pro-level nitrogen enrollment allows flat-rate and manure applications. The premium-level allows variable rate applications.
- In the search bar located at the top of any page on the Encirca site, load the Operation and select the current Crop Year.
- From any page on the Encirca Site, click the Apps Launcher
- Select Nitrogen 2.0.
- On the Nitrogen Placement grid, click the value in the Soil Depth column for an enrolled field.
- In the Soil Modeling Depth dialog box, select the appropriate soil depth for the soil type in your field.
- Note: Changing the modeling depth affects nitrogen modeling. Consider running a simulation on-demand or waiting for nightly nitrogen simulations to update results before you change the soil depth.
- Click Save.
