Sensors have been proposed as a tool for measuring crop nitrogen status, allowing for sensor-based nitrogen management decisions that respond to the crop's nitrogen needs in real time. Dr. Jim Schepers, Emeritus Professor in the Agronomy and Horticulture Department at UNL and former researcher with the USDA-ARS, joins this episode of the FarmBits podcast. This discussion with Dr. Schepers covers the history of nitrogen sensor development, the theory behind why sensors should enable better nitrogen management, advantages and disadvantages to different sensor platforms, and the future of sensor-based technologies. Over his esteemed career, Dr. Schepers has driven innovation in responsive nitrogen management using sensor technologies and he continues to be involved in innovative research still today. Sensor-based solutions are of growing interest to farmers, trusted advisors, and researchers alike and there is no better way to learn more about sensor-based solutions than learning from Dr. Schepers.
