As part of the state-wide series of workshops, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach invites farmers and those who advise them to attend an event on Thursday, August 9th at the ISU Northeast Research Farm near Nashua, titled; “Focus on Nitrogen: Managing Nitrogen for Maximum Profit and Minimum Water Quality Impact”.

Being one of the country’s most prestigious water quality research facilities, we will kick off the day with a field tour by Ken Pecinovsky, farm superintendent, which will highlight nitrogen management strategies and water quality testing practices being conducted on the farm. Brian Lang and Terry Basol, ISU agronomists, will discuss the nitrogen fertilizer recommendations for corn, split application of nitrogen, and cover crops as it pertains to making crop production decisions. The day will conclude with a manure applicator distribution demonstration and nitrogen management discussion (as it relates to manure) by Kapil Arora, ISU ag engineer, and Terry Basol.

The program is free and open to the public, and runs from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm with lunch provided. Registration is 9:30 am to 10:00 am at the Borlaug Learning Center (BLC). Pre-registration is required for lunch, so please call the BLC at 641-435-4864 to secure a spot. CCA credits have been applied for.
