Better Nitrogen Management Workshop

 

Getting nitrogen application right means better crops, a better environment, and a better bottom line for your farm.  Join us for a workshop on nitrogen management at the UNH Cooperative Extension Conference Room, 3855 Dartmouth College Hwy, North Haverhill, NH 03774, Thursday, October 18 from 1 to 3 p.m.

 

The four keys to nutrient application are to apply the right product at the right amount at the right time and in the right place for maximum plant benefit. Applying too much nitrogen, applying it at a time when plants can’t take it up, or applying it in a place where plant roots can’t reach it results in reduced crop yields, wasted inputs of materials and time, and the risk of contaminating surface and groundwater.

 

Chad Cochrane, NRCS Resource Conservationist, and Bill Fosher with the New Hampshire Association of Conservation District’s Connecticut River watershed soil health initiative, will be on hand to present options for developing plans to make the best use of farm nutrients.

 

This workshop is geared primarily at corn silage producers, but anyone who applies manure or other supplemental nitrogen sources to any crop will benefit from the discussion.

This workshop is co-sponsored by the Grafton County Conservation District, NH NRCS, and NHACD.  Join us on Thursday, October 18 to learn more about nitrogen management.  Please contact Pam at GCCD by phone (603) 353-4652 or email: pamela.gilbert@nh.nacdnet.net for more information, and to register for this meeting.
