Determining the Optimal Amount of Nitrogen to Apply to Corn Using the Box-Cox Functional Form
Tauer, Loren W
A Box-Cox functional form was estimated from corn-nitrogen data previously used to report optimal nitrogen use from a quadratic production function. Results suggest that less nitrogen should be applied than recommended using the quadratic function, but with more nitrogen being applied if poor growing conditions are expected.
