OSU Extension offers a Nutrient Management Series


SIDNEY — Starting March 2, The Ohio State University Extension in partnership with Shelby County Soil and Water Conservation District, will be offering a series of classes for adapting nutrient management to our farming system. This is a new program being supported by the H2Ohio nutrient management program available to producers in the Lake Erie water basin.

The workshop series discusses adaptive management options to improve upon tri-state base recommendations in your farming system. Rate, timing, placement and source examples will be the workshop focus. Case studies will be heavily focused on as examples for workshop discission.

This is a new and updated program designed for producers who already have basic knowledge of soil structure and nutrient management. Sessions will be diving deeper into management systems looking at water quality and economic based decisions.

The progrram will be held at Shelby County Ag Center, 810 Fair Road, Sidney, from 6-8:30 p.m.

The workshop dates are:

• March 2, Nitrogen and sulfur management options to improve profit.

• March 9, Adapting the new Tri-State P & K Recommendations to meet your farm goals.

• March 16, How does soil management interact with nutrient management.

Each participant should bring a soil test report. We will identify nutrients or other management practices that can improve yield or reduce inputs to enhance profitability.

Ohio State University Extension will be offering credits for NEW or existing fertilizer license/recertification if you attend all three classes.

RSVP to Shelby County OSU Extension office in person or call(937-498-7239.

The program is limited to 25 participants.
