Optimizing Nutrient Management

The Optimizing Nutrient Management content has been created to introduce farmers to management tools, practices, and strategies that increase farm profit by maximizing the return received from nutrient inputs while avoiding over/under application of nutrients. Currently, the challenges for the 2022 growing season of potentially limited fertilizer availability and high prices for the available fertilizer are suspected to increase expenses for crop inputs and can lead to farmers making rushed or poor fertility management decisions. Planning that involves crop budgeting, soil testing, and a good nutrient management plan will help farmers calmly and confidently confront fertility challenges in the 2022 growing season and beyond.

Below you will be able to access the YouTube playlist with videos that were created to instruct farmers on how to optimize nutrient management on their farm, along with both pdf and interactive versions of our responses to frequently asked questions (FAQs) that we have received related to optimizing nutrient management.
