Managing Field Cropping to Lower Energy Costs

Presenter: Mark Hanna, Extension Agricultural Engineer, Iowa State University

Reducing energy use in cropping operations involves good maintenance of equipment, reducing tillage operations, ballasting tractors properly, managing nitrogen and reducing grain drying energy use. The webinar will make the case for using minimum tillage, timely routine tractor maintenance, shorter maturity corn to reduce drying costs and more precise management of nitrogen application.
