Dr. Brown is the creator of N-TRACKER and has over 6 years of experience using the technique to track plant-available N. Dr. Brown has reviewed over 1400 N-tracking sites over the past 6 years and has worked with several crop specialists and producers helping them interpret the results and make N management decisions.
