Please join us for the Iowa Learning Farms webinar at noon, Wednesday, August 4, featuring Melissa Wilson, assistant professor and extension specialist, University of Minnesota.
In her session, “Applying Liquid Manure to Living Roots: Research Update,” Wilson will provide an update on best practices for manure application and the results from the past several years’ research. The webinar will include observations and outcomes of research regarding the optimization of manure application to minimize nutrient loss while maximizing the availability of nutrients from this home-grown resource to crops.
“Optimizing the use of this renewable resource can help reduce fertilizer needs (saving money!),” said Wilson. “Developing and refining best practices for manure application will deliver substantial benefits to farmers while minimizing nutrient losses from fields.”
Participants in Iowa Learning Farms Conservation Webinars are encouraged to ask questions of the presenters. People from all backgrounds and areas of interest are encouraged to join.
