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.


The second annual nitrogen conference entitled "Minnesota's Grand Challenge & Compelling Opportunity" will be held on Feb. 23 at the International Event Center in Rochester. This conference will focus more specifically on nitrogen management and water quality issues.

Farmers, crop advisers and other nutrient management professionals are encouraged and invited to attend.

Both conferences provide opportunities for Continuing Education Units to be earned by certified crop advisers. More information and the full agendas can be found at http://www.mawrc.org/events.html

The conferences are sponsored by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, University of Minnesota Extension, along with numerous agricultural businesses and organizations.

Thanks to sponsor support, registration for each event is only $20, which can be paid on-line at the time or registration or at the door. You may register online via the above link. To register by phone or for more information, call George Rehm at 507-263-9127, or Fabian Fernandez at 612-625-7460
