Manure Isn't What it Used to Be

University of Minnesota Extension researchers say they're planning to launch a computer database to monitor manure nutrient values. Past values don't match the results in testing, which frequently contain more plant nutrients than past values indicate.

Adam Chappell Mulches Out of P and K

2022 Responsible Nutrient Management Practitioners Award recipient is slashing synthetic inputs with no-till, cover crops and lots of added carbon.
Adam Chappell remembers when he decided to remove two elements from his farm’s periodic table. Until 2015, the fourth-generation Arkansas no-tiller and 2022 Responsible Nutrient Management Practitioners Award recipient had been purchasing the usual rates of phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) on his family land outside of Cotton Plant, Ark., where he farms with his brother, Seth.

Starter Fertilizer is Essential in Residue-Heavy Fields

When fertilizer is used as a starter, the data shows that it is largely not effective in terms of yield or economical response; however, if the fertilizer is added to a soil that tests low for soil test P (less than the critical value), a response to that fertilizer is expected, says the University of Nebraska.

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.
