File 2015 Soil Tillage Impact on Growth and Yields of Corn in Rotation with Energy Beet and Soybean
A project to assess the impact of energy beet as a preceding crop on corn yields.

File 2015 Optimizing Fungicide Application Strategies for Management of Sclerotinia in Dry Edible Beans
The Carrington Research Extension Center initiated two new studies in 2015 with the goal of optimizing the use of fungicides for management of Sclerotinia stem rot (white mold) in dry edible beans. Fungicide application timing was assessed, and the use of drop nozzles was tested as a means for improving fungicide coverage.

File 2015 Evaluation of Fertility Strategies Aimed at Enhancing Crop Production on a Hillside with Eroded Soil
Soil erosion is a common problem on slopes and hilltops. Top soil is often lost very quickly from those areas. In theory, increasing fertility of such fields would add more organic matter and carbon to the soil, improving soil properties in the long run. For this reason, different strategies were employed on a hilltop of a farm in Hurdsfield, ND.

File ECMAScript program 2015 Soybean Planting Dates and Rates
Studies were established in 2014 and 2015 to evaluate the effect of a range of soybean plant populations at various planting dates. One goal was to determine when it may be appropriate to replant soybeans and when they should be left as is.

File Troff document 2015 The Effect of Sulfur Application on Yield and Protein of Spring Wheat
Sulfur deficiency is a growing problem for wheat and many crops in North Dakota, yet minimal studies have been conducted in recent years to provide updates on the economic impact of sulfur application to wheat. The trial was established to determine if sulfur application improves wheat yields. And if so, would wheat response depend on available S.

File chemical/x-pdb 2015 Feedlot Beef Manure as a Source of Nitrogen for Wheat and Nitrogen Strategies to Increase Wheat Protein Content
Previous research at the Carrington REC has shown that plots fertilized with manure show similar yields to plots fertilized with commercial fertilizers, but the protein content is in general lower on the manure plots. The study objective was to assess the effects of beef feedlot manure application in combination with strategic commercial fertilizer applications to improve wheat protein content.

File 2015 Impact of Plant Establishment on Corn Production in Eddy, Foster and Wells Counties, 2013-15
The study’s main objective was to measure the yield response of late-emerging plants, plant doubles and plant skips compared to normally emerged and evenly spaced plants. This report summarizes highlights of the study conducted in Eddy, Foster and Wells counties using data from 10 commercial fields.

File 2015 Influence of Two Fat Levels of Dry Distillers Grains in Diets with Corn or Barley on Steer Growing and Finishing Feedlot Performance
Corn distillers grain is produced at multiple ethanol plants in North Dakota. Primarily three moisture levels of corn distillers grain product are available: dry (~90-95% dry matter, DDGS), modified (49-52% dry mater, MDGS) or wet (< 48% dry matter; WDGS). The current process typically involves a step to remove corn oil (fat) during ethanol production. This oil removal may alter the nutrient density of the resulting distillers grain feedstuff, which in turn could affect animal performance.

File 2015 Beets as Feed for Growing and Finishing Steers
Sugar beets have been fed to cattle throughout the world for the past 100+ years but only recently have we realized that this crop has the unique potential of producing high yields on saline soils where other crops will not grow. “Feed beets™” are a variation of sugarbeets developed specifically for feeding ruminant animals. Beets contain more energy than corn silage (80% vs. 70% TDN; Table 1) but are typically lower in dry matter (DM) (25% vs. 35%). The sugar and digestible fiber content make beets particularly attractive as a feedstuff for all classes of beef cattle.
