How to Increase NUE?
Sensor Based Nitrogen Rate Calculator, Topdress and Sidedress N rates for Corn and Wheat
Sensor Based Nitrogen Rate Calculator, on-line since 2002.  This is the most effective methodology available today for increasing NUE in cereal production.  Putting out N Rich Strips will benefit farmers on-average $10.00 per acre.  Getting the right mid-season flat rate is worth $5.00 more per acre in wheat and even more in corn.
Calibration Stamps for Improved Mid-Season Fertilizer N Recommendations in Corn and Wheat Production Systems
Don't put down more N than you need.  Calibration stamps provide a simple and applied method for determining mid-season fertilizer N rates
