Manure Application Considerations During Dry Soil Conditions
Thursday, September 24 (1 pm – 2 pm)
Maximizing the nutrient availability and retention of applied manure for the upcoming crops begins with proper handling and application to the land. During dry conditions, it is even more important as those nutrients are especially vulnerable to being flushed from the system during future rain events. Brian Dougherty, an Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Field Agricultural Engineer, led a study at the ISU Northeast Research near Nashua to examine the effect of manure application timing and cover crops on yields and drainage water quality. During the virtual event, Dougherty will be share results from that project and similar projects, as well as provide best management practices for applying manure for the upcoming crop year.
