Models are one class of predictive tool for nitrogen management. They offer many advantages, but also carry inherent risks associated with attempting to quantify and predict how a complex system will respond to nitrogen. Our guest for this episode, Dr. Laila Puntel, is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Agronomy and Horticulture at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln. Her expertise is in soil and water sciences - particularly soil fertility and precision agriculture - and she has extensive experience working in nitrogen and crop model development. This episode makes the complex idea of a nitrogen model much more approachable, connects the dots between the abstract concept of a model with commercially available tools, and takes a deep dive into the efficacy of models from multiple angles. If you've ever wondered what models really are and how they may be used, this episode is for you.
