Atlantic Coastal Region — North Carolina State University — Beaufort County

 

At the Northeastern Carolina Experimental Research Center in Beaufort County, NCSU Extension is diving into field efforts to study in corn and soybean production using strip tillage as a comparison of both fertility placement and compaction alleviation.  This station is very close to Pamlico Bay that drains into the Atlantic Ocean.  Their plots consists of:

 

Plot 1 – banding N under corn at various rates at planting, to determine if this is more efficient than broadcasting.

 

Plot 2 and 3 – banding N under corn and beans at various depths to determine the best precise banding depths and also looking at deep tillage with the 1tRIPr for compaction alleviation.
