The University of Missouri Extension Commercial Agriculture Program along with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service will hold the 2013 Annual Advanced Nutrient Management Course Feb. 5-6 at the MU Bradford Research Center, Columbia.
The course is open to anyone interested in learning more about managing nutrients on farms. The course will be of special benefit to those farms using animal manure as a fertilizer. It is highly recommended for manure applicators and those who write nutrient management plans in Missouri.
In addition to manure strategies and adjusting manure rates based on new manure tests, topics will include wheat fertilizer management, organic alfalfa production, cover crops and regulatory issues.
The course has been approved for 12 CEUs for MDNR CAFO operators; seven CEUs for MDNR wastewater operators; six CEUs for nutrient management; three CEUs for soil and water; and three CEUs for crop management for certified crop advisers.
