The Minnesota Agricultural Water Resource Center is hosting two conferences in February that focus on nutrient management.
Both conferences will highlight recent advances in effective and economical nutrient management presented by University of Minnesota researchers, fertilizer industry experts and state agency officials.
The Eighth Annual Crop Nutrient Management Conference will be held on Feb. 9 at Jackpot Junction near Morton. The conference will focus on nitrogen and phosphorus management with significant emphasis on water quality considerations. In 2016, fertilizer expenditures will be a major cost of production. This conference will also focus on economical fertilizer programs.
