To reach the goals of the Iowa Nutrient Reduction Strategy and its Water Quality Initiative, Iowa farmers need to consider all their options, including infield nutrient management, traditional infield soil and water practices and structures, and the newer edge of field practices and structures. Learn more about how weather and the use of the “4 Rs” (the right fertilizer source at the right rate, at the right time and in the right place) impact N-loss, and what you can do to optimize your management while protecting water resources. Dr. Matthew Helmers, Dean’s Professor, College of Agriculture & Life Sciences Professor, Department of Ag and Biosystems Engineering, Iowa State University, will be featured in the March 29 webinar.

The webinar will provide the opportunity for participants to ask questions.
