Nutrient Management Conferences to Address Profitability and Water Quality Concerns

Money spent for fertilizer is always a major consideration and because of low commodity prices, crop producers are looking at costs – particularly at efficiency in fertilizer use. There will be important decisions made this winter.


Participants in the 2014 Nutrient Management Conference

Two educational events are planned to help with these decisions. The first is the Nutrient Management Conference on February 9 at Jackpot Junction, Morton, MN. The second is the Nitrogen Management Conference on February 23 at the International Events Center at Rochester MN. Both conferences are sponsored by the Minnesota Agricultural Water Resources Center (MAWRC), the Minnesota Extension Service, the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, and several firms in private industry.

These conferences bring the best speakers in the Midwest to Minnesota. These speakers bring expertise and knowledge from North Dakota State University, Iowa state University, The University of Minnesota and the University of Wisconsin. Topics are focused on efficient and effective management of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and lime.

There is a registration fee of $20 to pay for lunch and breaks. Pre-registration is not required, but it helps with food preparation. There are several ways to register. The easiest is to register online. These programs are loaded with good, useful information.
