Nutrient management is a major topic of conversation in agriculture. As Ohio struggles to improve water quality in Lake Erie, Grand Lake St. Mary’s, and rivers across the state, farmers are being pressed even harder to make better on-farm management decisions. This year, The Ohio State University Extension and the Digital Ag program team at OSU is hosting “Precision University: Nutrient Technology” as a way to highlight key nutrient management techniques and strategies.
The January 11th workshop, to be held at Beck’s Hybrid’s, 720 U.S. 40 in London, Ohio, will feature speakers from both industry and academia who are experts in nutrient management technology. The event will also feature a panel discussion about equipment and technology for practical nutrient management, specialists in nutrient management, and special vendor presentations.
Presentations at Precision University begin at 9 a.m. with the program concluding at 3:30 p.m. The event will also feature vendors focused on nutrient management technology and services. CCA CEUs and private and commercial fertilizer recertification credits will be offered.
The cost to register for Precision University is $50 and includes the program, handouts, lunch and refreshments. For more information or to register, visit http://go.osu.edu/PrecisionU.
