by Dan Martens, Extension Educator in Stearns-Benton-Morrison Counties
WORKSHOPS in Little Falls March 8, Foley March 19, Melrose March 20
     At each site the workshop will start with registration at 9:30 a.m.; program starts at 10 a.m.; lunch at noon; and adjourn at 2:00 p.m.
     MORNING MANURE NUTRIENT TOPIC AT ALL SITES
     Randy Pepin, Extension Educator with Nutrient Management Projects, will lead a discussion built around on-farm case studies looking at soil grid sampling information as a clue for manure application decisions. Whether you've used grid sampling, you're just thinking about it, or just want to consider strategies for making good use of manure nutrients - you will likely gain something useful from this discussion.
     AFTERNOON ALFALFA NITROGEN CREDIT TOPIC AT LITTLE FALLS AND MELROSE
     Extension Corn Agronomist Jeff Coulter and research assistant Matt Yost will share information about on-farm field trials looking at nitrogen available to a corn crop following alfalfa. Many farmers and crop advisors have valid questions about whether you can bank on 150 pounds of nitrogen available to a corn crop following alfalfa. The field trials are providing some valid information to look at these questions.
     AFTERNOON AT FOLEY:
     Alfalfa N Credits - Extension Educator Dan Martens
     Benton SWCD / NRCS Field Trials and Resources
     MPCA Feedlot and Manure Application Discussion

Check the attached flyer for times locations and registration information. Lunch will be free for the first 30 registrations.  Manure Alfalfa Nutrients Workshop.pdf
