What soil depth is used in the Nitrogen model?
- Farm and Fields created.
- Crop assigned to a field.
- Yield goal set.
- Indicate the field's tiled status.
- Nitrogen plan template created and applied to a field.
The Nitrogen model tracks nitrogen dynamics in the top 2 meters of soil. The Season Chart display and nitrogen recommendations are based on the set modeling depth.
- Depth can be selected in the web interface in 1-foot increments.
- The depth range summarizes and reports the data for the set depth.
- Think about the typical effective rooting depth for the soils in your field.
- Two feet is appropriate for most soils in the Midwest Corn Belt.
- Shallow soils, especially with restrictive layers or shallow water tables, might benefit from using a 1-foot reporting depth.
- Extremely well-drained soils with deep rooting potential might benefit from using 3-5 feet reporting depths.
