Carbon To Nitrogen Ratio in Crop Residue

By: Dorivar Ruiz-Diaz, Professor, Kansas State University

K-State crop nutrient specialist Dorivar Ruiz-Diaz talks about the process of nutrient release from crop residue and cover crops, and why producers should pay attention to that as part of their crop nutrient management…he explains how the carbon-to-nitrogen ratio of various kinds of residue and cover crop plant material is associated with that nutrient release.
