Climate and Managing Corn-Soybean Agroecosystems, Vol. 2 of 5

It is critical, given an increasingly variable climate and occurrence of extreme weather events, to develop and test management approaches that increase the adaptive capacity of corn-based agriculture, and equip farmers and land managers to be functionally resilient.The findings, implications and recommendations in this report represent research conducted over the last five years (2011-2016) and is focused on improving understanding of the complex interactions among weather-climate, water cycles, nitrogen, soil carbon, and human-social systems of corn-based systems. This work reflects experimentation and assessments of in-field management practices, such as drainage, tillage, cover crops, extended rotations, and nitrogen sensing to determine how farmers can better utilize these practices to meet crop productivity and environmental goals under increasingly variable weather.
