Background Hillslope

Improving N recommendations for corn

Spatial variability in relief, aspect, soil water content

Fox observed a relationship in PA between EONR and July precipitation


Field site - 2005 Hillslope

1000 ft horizontal, 30 ft vertical relief

Previous crop soybean

Soil pH: 5.3 – 5.7

Soil P (M3): 24 – 77

Soil K (M3): 97 – 156



Treatment design Hillslope

Ten locations, 2 blocks each

Six N treatments: 0, 50, 100, 150, 200, 250 lb N / acre, applied at planting as NH4NO3

TDR access tubes at each location

Soil water content, 5 June – 2 Sept, 0 – 90 cm depth

Canopy reflectance, Crop Circle ACS-210

Grain yield at harvest










Summary Hillslope

EONR increased linearly with an increase in soil profile water content, 25 July – 30 June

EONR was not correlated to NDVI ratio

NDVI 01 July decreased linearly with increasing soil profile water content on 30 June
