Warren-Henderson County Farm Bureau
Nitrogen Management Field Day
As part of the last Nutrient Stewardship Field Day in 2021, Warren-Henderson Farm Bureau partnered with several collaborators to share information about an on-going nitrogen management study taking place near Kirkwood, Illinois. Host farmer Jacob Baker plays a key role in implementing the plot every year and collaborators from IFB and the University of Illinois (U of I) Extension assist with analyzing the data and producing the data booklet. The booklet covers several components of the study, including agronomic timeline and treatments, yields, net profits, and Maximum Return to Nitrogen (MRTN) results. Presenters from U of I Crop Sciences and Illinois NRCS also participated in the field day.
Certified Crop Advisors can receive self-reported Continuing Education Units (CEUs) after watching the videos for each of these field days. For more information and to find the self-reporting form, visit www.certifiedcropadvisor.org and click “Self-Report CEUs.”
