The effects of variable irrigation and nitrogen application rates on silage corn yield, and water use efficiency under sprinkler, sub-surface drip irrigation and on-surface drip irrigation systems are discussed in a new University of Wyoming Extension bulletin.
Research at the Powell Research and Extension Center found drip irrigation systems can help save as much as 50 percent on water and also provide high yields.
The free publication Different irrigation systems and nitrogen rates improve yield and water use efficiency of corn silage, B-1326, is available in pdf, HTML and ePub formats. Go to www.edu/uwe and click on Find a Publication. Type in the title or bulletin number.
The bulletin is among many free guides, courses and videos from UW Extension to help extend skills in ranching, irrigation, small acreage management, succession, legacy and estate planning and more. YouTube video series from UW Extension include “Barnyards and Backyards,” “From the Ground Up” and “Exploring the Nature of Wyoming.”
