Farmers Edge Offers the Most Precise Nitrogen Management Tool at No Cost to Corn Growers in Wake of Unfavorable Weather Events

Sponsored by Businesswire

Farmers Edge™ today announced they are providing their yield-based
nitrogen tool at no additional cost to growers for the season. Following
recent weather events impacting soil nitrogen levels, the tool will help
growers reach their yield goals by providing greater control over the
most important decision affecting corn production. Unlike other nitrogen
management tools on the market that base recommendations on publicly
available data, N-Manager
is the industry’s first and only tool that uses multiple field-centric
variables to give growers accurate recommendations for their farm versus
generic estimations. Integrated with the FarmCommand™
platform, N-Manager gives growers a simple and automated way to
determine precisely the right amount of nitrogen to apply at the right
time in each management zone or field on their farm to maximize
effectiveness, minimize losses, and improve corn profits. Growers who
sign up for N-Manager also receive direct assistance from Farmers Edge
agronomists to support nitrogen planning, along with access to a myriad
of digital tools to guide decisions.

This innovative tool has been intensively calibrated, validated under
diverse geographical conditions, and tested under a wide variety of
management scenarios. In a multi-year study that tested the nitrogen
model across over 2,600 R&D zones, N-Manager achieved the gold standard
of accuracy for its mineralization values in comparison to USDA standard
values. Precise, easy to use, and data-rich, N-Manager helps to ensure
the global corn industry moves into a future defined by highly efficient
and sustainable production.

“While Mother Nature is both a friend and a foe to farmers, data is the
great equalizer,” said Wade Barnes, CEO of Farmers Edge. “This year,
excess moisture has caused corn growers a lot of doubt and angst
surrounding nitrogen. On one hand, growers need to ensure they don’t
short the crop but wasting money is not an option either as margins are
getting tighter. We’re offering N-Manager at no cost to demonstrate the
value that real-time strategies bring to growers in circumstances with a
lot of uncertainty, giving them one less thing to worry about.”

N-Manager Provides the Industry’s Most Accurate Zone-by-Zone Nutrient

Nitrogen remains the most important, yet the most difficult, nutrient to
manage for high-yield corn production. Offering automated daily or
on-demand updates, N-Manager provides Farmers Edge growers with highly
specific nitrogen data on a field, or zone-by-zone basis, allowing them
to adopt optimized nutrient stewardship practices that help reduce
environmental impact while increasing yields. To provide growers with
full visibility of the needs of their crops, N-Manager is complemented
by exclusive features from Farmers Edge to help plan applications, track
critical growth stages, and visualize overall crop health from anywhere.
Designed to deliver the highest levels of accuracy to support informed
decision-making, N-Manager combines more field-centric variables than
any other tool in the industry, including:

  • Meteorological information from on-farm weather stations;
  • Soil sampling analysis;
  • Detailed crop management data such as hybrid planted, planting rate,
    depth, and date, row spacing, and the presence of tile drainage or

“This past year, we decided to use N-Manager across all our fields.
After sitting down with our Famers Edge agronomist to map our yield
goals, he put together a program for each of our farms,” said Tanner
Lawton, a grower and Farmers Edge customer in Iowa. “We saw a very
significant yield increase by taking a customized approach for each
zone, instead of just doing things as usual. Farmers Edge allows you to
analyze information much more in-depth and put all the pieces of the
puzzle together at the same time. It’s been time and money well spent on
the nitrogen program with Farmers Edge.”


N-Manager is available now and at no additional cost through the end of
the year to new and existing Farmers Edge customers.
