Stenon’s case-study for Brazilian corn growers

Tips for corn growers on how to increase savings on N-fertilizer inputs.

How can corn growers in Brazil cut down costs on fertilizers while keeping their yields‘ size and quality the same? Stenon’s partner from Lavoro Agro (Guarapuava), Fabio Dibas, knows the tips. Lavoro has been helping growers in that region for years improve their production, and now, finally, with the help of Stenon’s innovative soil analysis technology, FarmLab, Lavoro’s experts can enhance their services and provide corn growers with accurate recommendations on N-fertilizer.

Stenon’s studies have proven that the growers can save up to 20% on N fertilizer while achieving the same yield. Watch the full success story video to learn more about the benefits of Stenon’s real-time soil analysis solution for corn growers. Or contact us to learn more.

Agricultural news spanning the globe

In our Reading Tips we offer the overview of articles with interesting insights about different nitrogen sources for corn production, the uptake of nitrogen for sugarcane and a short overview of the general N-cycle.

As nitrogen is very important for corn production, growers continuously face the challenge of finding the right balance between fertilizer costs and desired yield. However, knowledge of nitrogen sources (fertilizer, manure, soil organic matter, crop residues, etc.) and an understanding of how corn grows and how much nitrogen is taken up in each of the growth stages can help growers and agronomists make sound nitrogen management decisions. In this article from Cornell University, the authors reveal these insights. Corn producers can especially benefit from Stenon’s FarmLab, as our soil analysis solution can provide them with data on plant-available nitrogen and soil organic matter at any given crop stage. Contact us to learn more about it..

Another interesting study we would like to share is dedicated to the uptake of nitrogen for sugarcane. One of the findings of that study is that long-term nitrogen fertilization potentially affects how soil processes nitrogen and can lead to the reduction of the nitrogen fertilizer impact. That’s why lots of growers and agricultural experts have had such a positive experience using Stenon’s FarmLab, as it helped them reduce fertilizer application in some cases by 20%.

One of the advantages of Stenon’s FarmLab is that users can conduct soil analysis at any given time. Depending on the crop, cycle, and climate conditions, agriculture businesses can obtain the most accurate data on plant-available nitrogen, SOM, and other important parameters. But besides these conditions, it’s very important to consider the full nitrogen cycle for the best practice of fertilizer application. In this insightful article in German, you can find a short overview of the general N cycle, including phases such as Ammonification, Nitrification, Denitrification, Mineralization, and Immobilization.
At Stenon, we are glad that with the help of our real-time soil analysis solution, agronomists and growers can obtain accurate soil data on demand and make data-driven decisions.
