The overall goal of this project is to demonstrate the economic and environmental benefits of a new type of deep subsoil treatment beneath a variety of cropping systems in Nebraska. This project will be coupled to existing grant-funded projects investigating leaching losses and transport rates of nitrate in Nebraska, and use new tools for characterizing nitrate management and demonstrate the effect of subsoil injections for managing nitrate losses. The results from these comparisons will be presented in an on-farm workshops and highlighted in several extension and outreach publications.
