Technical Abstract: Nitrogen fertilization can enhance crop yields, but excessive fertilization can degrade soil and environmental quality. Improved management techniques are needed to sustain crop yields while maintaining environmental footprints by reducing N fertilization rates. This article discusses improve management techniques to reduce N fertilization rates while sustaining crop yields and soil and environmental quality.
