Two separate Idaho meetings March 6 are set to focus on direct seeding and nutrient management.
The 2014 South Idaho Direct Seed Workshop sponsored by the Idaho Wheat Commission will open at the Hotel on the Falls at 475 River Parkway, Idaho Falls, at 9 a.m. and run through 2:3o p.m.
Two early March meetings in southern Idaho will focus on direct seeding and nutrients.
The shop includes the following sessions:
•2014 water outlook with Ron Abramovich of the Natural Resource Conservation Service or Brian Sauer of the Bureau of Reclamation.
•How to make water utilization in a drought year will be probed by Agri-Trend's Markus Braaten.
•Elston Solberg of Agri-Trend will discuss fertility management type, rate, placement and timing.
•Cover crops in low rain fed regions will be reviewed by Montana State University's Susan Tallman.
•A grower experience will be presented by Malad, Idaho, producer Scott Fuhriman.
•Wireworms will be the topic of a talk by Juliet Marshall.
For information on attending this meeting and to register, contact Theresa Waterman [email protected]. or call her at (208) 334-2353.
The Twin Falls 2014 Nutrient Management Conference at Stone House& Company, 330 4th Ave. South is sponsored by the University of Idaho Extension Service, which will offer information and discussions on ag wastes, crop nutrients, dairies and water quality.
Researchers from several government agencies will be on the agenda along with UI personnel. Also on the program will be a discussion of cover crops ranging from legumes, grains, oilseed radishes and more, all which can provide N and organic matter to soils to increase fertility and physical properties like water retention.
Dairy manure is often applied to southern Idaho fields both to dispose of waste and as a fertilizer. Too much in the soil can threaten groundwater quality, an issue conference speakers will address.
