Beer Makers Target Precise Fertilizer Application

Sentera, a technology company that provides agronomic insights, is partnering with Anheuser-Busch to improve nitrogen usage among growers. The pair will focus on nitrogen demands in rice production, which is critical for beer.
“While currently there are ways to systematically manage nitrogen demand, this solution enables us to get a baseline for the field, recommend a rate and closely monitor plant health throughout the growing season to modify additional applications accordingly,” said Zach Marston, principle scientist at Sentera in a recent press release. “Ultimately, this empowers us to make adaptive decisions regarding nitrogen applications and management.”
Anheuser-Busch’s agronomy team will use Sentera’s technology to make field-level nutrient and nitrogen prescriptions. They’ll target high yields, while maintaining responsible nitrogen programs.
