Interpretive Summary

Building a Maximum Yield Cropping System for Corn, Wheat, and Doublecropped Soybeans, 2010 The goal of this study is to develop a management program that increases crop yield, input efficiency, and profit potential in a predominantly no-till cropping system. This cropping system consists of four crops planted over 3 years, including: no-till soybeans in corn stubble, followed by minimum-till wheat doublecropped with no-till soybeans, and then no-till corn.

Building a Maximum Yield Cropping System for Corn, Wheat, and Doublecropped Soybeans, 2009 The goal of this study is to develop a management program that increases crop yield, input efficiency, and profit potential in a predominantly no-till cropping system. This cropping system consists of four crops planted over 3 years, including: no-till soybeans in corn stubble, followed by minimum-till wheat double-cropped with no-till soybeans, and then no-till corn.

Building a Maximum Yield Cropping System for Corn, Wheat, and Doublecropped Soybeans in Maryland, 2009 The goal of this study is to develop a management program that increases crop yield, input efficiency, and profit potential in a predominantly no-till cropping system. This cropping system consists of four crops planted over 3 years, including: no-till soybeans in corn stubble, followed by minimum-till wheat doublecropped with no-till soybeans, and then no-till corn.

Building a Maximum Yield Cropping System for Corn, Wheat, and Doublecropped Soybeans in Maryland, 2008 The goal of this study is to develop a management program that increases crop yield, input efficiency, and profit potential in a predominantly no-till cropping system. This cropping system consists of four crops planted over 3 years, including: no-till soybeans in corn stubble, followed by minimum-till wheat doublecropped with no-till soybeans, and then no-till corn.

Building a Maximum Yield Cropping System for Corn, Wheat, and Doublecropped Soybeans, 2007 Sixteen N sources were evaluated on winter wheat in 2007. The crops were grown with and without tillage on a Mattapex silt loam soil. Sources containing ammonium sulfate or ammonium nitrate tended to produce modestly higher yields. Slow-release forms of N and elemental sulfur (S) did not boost yields when applied with timings similar to those used with the more soluble sources.

Building a Maximum Yield Cropping System for Corn, Wheat, and Doublecropped Soybeans, 2006 The goal of this study is to develop a management program that increases crop yield, input efficiency, and profit potential in a predominantly no-till cropping system. This cropping system consists of four crops planted over 3 years: no-till soybeans in corn stubble, followed by minimum-till wheat doublecropped with no-till soybeans, and then no-till corn.

Building a Maximum Yield Cropping System for Corn, Wheat, and Doublecropped Soybeans, 2005 The goal of this study is to develop a management program that increases crop yield, input efficiency, and profit potential in a predominantly no-till cropping system. This cropping system consists of four crops in 3 years: no-till soybeans in corn stubble, followed by minimum-till wheat doublecropped with no-till soybeans, and then no-till corn.

Building a Maximum Yield Cropping System for Corn, Wheat, and Doublecropped Soybeans, 2004. The goal of this study is to develop a management program that increases crop yield, input efficiency, and profit potential in a predominantly no-till cropping system. This cropping system consists of four crops in 3 years: no-till soybeans in corn stubble, followed by minimum-till wheat doublecropped with no-till soybeans, and then no-till corn.

Building a Maximum Yield Cropping System for Corn, Wheat, and Double-Cropped Soybeans, 2003. The goal of this study is to develop a management program that increases crop yield, input efficiency, and profit potential in a predominantly no-till cropping system. This cropping system consists of four crops in 3 years: no-till soybeans in corn stubble, followed by minimum-till wheat double-cropped with no-till soybeans, and then no-till corn.

Building a Maximum Yield Cropping System for Corn, Wheat and Double-Cropped Soybeans, 2002 The goal of this study is to develop a management program that increases crop yield, input efficiency, and profit potential in a predominantly no-till cropping system. This cropping system consists of four crops in three years: no-till soybeans in corn stubble, followed by minimum till wheat double-cropped with no-till soybeans, and then no-till corn.

Building a Maximum Yield Cropping System for Corn, Wheat, and Double-Cropped Soybeans, 2001 The goal of this study is to develop a management program that increases crop yield, input efficiency, and profit potential in a predominantly no-till cropping system. This cropping system consists of four crops in three years: no-till soybeans in corn stubble, followed by minimum till wheat double-cropped with no-till soybeans, and then no-till corn.

Building a Maximum Yield Cropping System for Corn, Wheat, and Double-Cropped Soybeans, 2000 A four crop/three-year cropping system consists of no-till soybeans in corn stubble, followed by minimum till wheat, no-till soybeans, and then no-till corn the third year. The goal of this study is to develop a management program that increases crop yield level, input efficiency, and profit potential in such a system.

Building a Maximum Yield Cropping System for Corn, Wheat, and Double-Cropped Soybeans, 1999 A four crop/three year cropping system consists of no-till soybeans in corn stubble, followed by minimum till wheat, no-till soybeans, and then no-till corn the third year. The goals of this study are to develop a systems management program that increases crop yield level, input efficiency, and profit potential. In the first year, the rotation improved corn yield by 14 bu/A and soybean yield by 5 bu/A.

Building a Maximum Yield Cropping System for Corn, Wheat and Double Cropped Soybeans, 1998 A four crop/three year cropping system consists of no till soybeans in corn stubble, followed by minimum till wheat, no till soybeans, and then no till corn the third year. The goals of this study are to develop a systems management program that increases crop yield level, input efficiency and profit potential. In the first year, the rotation improved corn yield by 14 bu/A and soybean yield by 5 bu/A.

Building a maximum yield cropping system for corn, wheat and double cropped soybeans, 1997 A four crop/three year cropping system consists of no till soybeans in corn stubble, followed by minimum till wheat, no till soybeans, and then no till corn the third year. The goals of this study are to develop a systems management program that increases crop yield levels, input efficiency and profit potential.

Building a maximum yield cropping system for corn, wheat and double cropped soybeans, 1996 A new four crop/three year cropping system was introduced into the study. It consists of no till soybeans in corn stubble, followed by minimum till (100 bu/A) wheat, no till soybeans, and then no till corn the third year. In the first year, this new rotation resulted in higher corn (14 bu) and soybean (5 bu) yields than other established rotation systems.
