Adapt-N is a nitrogen technology solution that uses models and data to precisely manage nitrogen for grain production. It allows for real-time and site-specific N management and can be used on its own or through integration with other farm management platforms.  We have shown win-win benefits where more efficient N management results in increased farm profits and reduced environmental impacts.  We will review field evaluations, including the Tulane Challenge trial, and also the new Adapt-N modules on cover crops and inhibitors.
