Applying crop nutrients when they are not needed is costly, especially in the current farm economy and harmful to the environment. Conversely, not applying enough fertilizer will cause a reduction in crop yield causing a decrease in profitability.
Cover crops are important to soil health, but how do you make them work? There are many options, what is the best option for your operation? Is soil health important? These questions along with nutrient management will be addressed at the upcoming meeting entitled: “Improving Your Bottom Line With Nutrients and Cover Crops”.
The meeting will be held March 13, 2018 from 9:15 AM to 3:40 PM at the Eagles in Wapakoneta (25 E. Auglaize St.).
Topics that will be discussed include: Basics of Cover Crops, Cover Crops for Forages, Making Cover Crops Work, Nitrogen and Gypsum Research Results, Nitrogen and Phosphorus Management and Management of Micronutrients. Speakers include: Alan Sundermeier, Allen Gahler, Mike Dailey, Joe Nester, Greg LaBarge, and Harold Watters.
There is no cost to the program because it is being sponsored by the Auglaize County Farm Bureau and Ohio Soybean Council. Please register by March 7, 2018 by calling 419-739-6580 or sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
