OMAHA (DTN) -- Inconsistent. That might be the best word to describe the results of applying nitrogen fertilizer to soybeans to increase yields.

University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension has been researching this topic at various soybean fields across the state as part of its Soybean Management Field Days in conjunction with the Nebraska Soybean Board. The field days this year were held Aug. 12-15 in Auburn, Shickley, Belgrade and Snyder.
