Reducing Spray Drift - AE1210
Spray drift is becoming an increasingly important part of every spraying operation. More diversification of crops, more active and non-selective herbicides, and a greater awareness of pesticides in the environment has caused spray drift management to become every applicator’s business.

Safflower Production - A870
Safflower provides three principal products: oil, meal and birdseed. Safflower oil consists of two types: those high in monounsaturated fatty acid (oleic) and those high in polyunsaturated fatty acid (linoleic). This publication provides background information on how to grow safflower in ND, from land selection, fertilizer management, variety selection, seeding, weed management to harvesting and marketing the crop. Safflower is an annual oilseed crop adapted primarily to the central grain areas of the western Great Plains.

Selected Management Factors for Economically Increasing Soybean Yield - A1718
Soybean yield increased with 14-inch versus 28-inch rows, 200,000 versus 150,000 pls/acre planting rate and special foliar inputs. The narrow rows also had higher net revenue than 28-inch rows. However, the low planting rate and no foliar inputs provided higher net revenue after costs of research factors versus the alternative choice for each factor.

Selecting a Sprinkler Irrigation System - AE91
The four basic methods of irrigation are: subsurface irrigation (“subirrigation,” which uses tile drain lines), surface or gravity irrigation, trickle irrigation (also called drip irrigation) and sprinkler irrigation. Of the acres currently irrigated in North Dakota, more than 80 percent use some type of sprinkler

Site-specific Farming 5: Active Optical Sensor Algorithms for Corn Yield Prediction and a Corn Side-dress Nitrogen Rate Aid - SF1176-5
Research from 2011 to 2013 has resulted in a data base that supports to use of active-optical sensors to direct side-dress N rates in corn. Previously, rates were determined using a grower best guess.

Site-specific Farming: Developing Zone Soil Sampling Maps - SF1176-2
This circular, although originally published in 2008 is still relevant and useful as is. Although almost half of the ND farmers utilize some site-specific technology, the other half would also benefit from its use.

Site-specific Farming: Economics and the Environment - SF1176-4
Site-specific farming technologies can result in economic gain for farmers if used correctly, and can also decrease impact from the environment from off-sight movement of fertilizers to groundwater and surface waters.

Site-specific Farming: What is Site-specific Farming? - SF1176-1
This circular, although originally published in 2008 is still relevant and useful as its. Although almost half of ND farmers utilize some site-specific technology, the other half would also benefit from its use.
