Turning Wastewater into Phosphorus Fertilizer

University of Illinois studies show struvite could recycle waste phosphates, reduce runoff pollution & possibly boost crop production

University of Illinois researchers have shown a substance separated from wastewater holds promise as a “triple win” for phosphorus (P) use in farming.

Proper Fertilizer Timing & Placement Optimizes Nutrient Needs

Deciding when & how to apply fertilizer depends on the nutrients, crops, equipment available & economic feasibility.
Many farmers are well-versed in the 4Rs of nutrient stewardship: apply the right source at the right rate, at the right time, in the right place. Following this framework ensures crops use nutrients efficiently and effectively, helping no-tillers maximize their fertilizer budget.

[Podcast] Kyle Schomers and 300-plus Bushels per Acre

For this episode of the No-Till Farmer podcast, brought to you by Yetter Farm Equipment, we're joined by Kyle Schomers. Schomers picked his best 10 acres and hit it with maximum nutrients in order to prep the ground for entry into the National Corn Growers Assn. (NCGA) Annual Yield Contest.

Why Phosphorus is Leaving the Farm and What to Do About it - Joe Nester - NNTC 2016 Presentation - MP3 Download

$19.95

Phosphorus has come under fire lately, especially around Lake Erie where toxic, blue-green algae blooms caused by phosphorus runoff have plagued the lake’s western basin the last several years. Why is this happening? Nester Ag owner and independent crop consultant Joe Nester from Bryan in northwest Ohio shares his thoughts on why phosphorus management is different today than it used to be. He talks about what practices no-tillers can employ on their farms to ensure their crops have adequate phosphorus while minimizing loss.

How Can I Place My ‘N’ and ‘P’ Better in a No-Till System? - John Fulton - NNTC 2016 Presentation - MP3 Download

$19.95

With environmental policies influencing the timing and placement of fertilizers, it’s important to improve the application toolbox without sacrificing farm profitability. Placing nitrogen and phosphorus below the soil surface has been a suggested way to reduce off-site transport of nutrients, but at times, field capacity (ac/hr) may be sacrificed. Moving forward, the ability to both accurately place nutrients and apply them at the right time will be important for the no-till operation. In this presentation, John Fulton discusses opportunities for timing and placement of nitrogen and phosphorus, and how new technology can help enhance delivery. The Ohio State ag engineer also discusses environmental risks, agronomic response and application field capacity, as well as tips to consider for success.
