Follow along with this podcast by downloading the PDF presentation where Amber Radatz shares data to shed light on the relationship between phosphorus, nitrogen and no-till.
It’s no secret no-tillers have worked to reduce soil losses on their farms, even in the steepest landscapes. But Amber Radatz asks an important question: Is no-till alone enough to control phosphorus and nitrogen from washing away into local watersheds?
The co-director of the University of Wisconsin’s Discovery Farms program will share on-farm data from more than 200 site years in Wisconsin and Minnesota that shed light on the relationship between phosphorus, nitrogen and no-till. She will also discuss how no-tillers can assess weather and runoff risk and provide guidance on when, where and how growers can spread manure and fertilizer for environmental and profit protection.
Amber also shares the type of phosphorus losses no-tillers are in danger of realizing in certain weather conditions, and the role that precipitation patterns, frozen farm ground and fertilizer timing can play with nutrients leaving the farm via runoff. She’ll also share some suggestions on how no-tillers can reduce the runoff risk and keep local watersheds cleaner.
