|Proceedings of the 31st Southern Conservation Agricultural Systems Conference||
Data from the Conservation Technology Information Center’s (CTIC) National Crop Residue Management Survey was used to establish trend lines for Virginia agricultural commodities. In 2007, double crop soybeans had the highest use of conservation tillage at 95.6% while 100% of potatoes were planted using conventional tillage. Most Virginia producers are integrating conservation tillage into their cropping systems, but vegetable crops have challenges that make adoption more difficult. Higher value vegetable and specialty crops are the last frontier for conquering the widespread use of conventional tillage and should be the main focus of research and Extension education programs to implement reduced and conservation tillage when systematically feasible.

|Sensor-Based, Variable-Rate Nitrogen Applications in Virginia||
Variable-rate applications (VRA) of nitrogen (N) fertilizers are a new option to assist producers with real-time fertilizer rate decisions. Two commercially available systems that allow variable-rate nitrogen applications are GreenSeeker (Trimble Navigation Limited; www. ntechindustries.com/greenseeker-home.html) and the OptRx Crop Sensor (Ag Leader Technology; www. agleader.com/products/directcommand/optrx/). A discussion of the science behind these systems, potential economic benefits, and other methodologies to make VRA is discussed in Virginia Cooperative Extension publication 442-505, “Precision Farming Tools: Variable-Rate Application” (Grisso et al. 2011).

Proper soil fertility management ensures sufficient nutrients for maximum cotton production. Obtaining and maintaining appropriate soil nutrient concentrations is imperative, as fertilizer inputs are the largest component of production budgets for Virginia cotton farmers. At the same time, excessive nutrient application wastes money, wastes natural resources, and can negatively impact yields and environmental quality.

|Yellow Corn in Virginia – Spring 2016||
Many of the corn fields on the Eastern Shore and in Eastern Virginia are “yellow” and stunted due to the weather this Spring and is similar to conditions that Virginia farmers experienced in Spring 2010. There are many reasons for the corn to be yellow that range from nutrient deficiencies to abiotic factors.
