Designer Manure: Customizing Manure Nutrients to Meet Crop Needs

After storage and handling, animal manures typically do not have crop nutrient ratios of N, P, and K that meet crop needs. This means that at least one nutrient will often be over- or under-applied. But what if we could create 'designer' manures to meet these needs? Organomineral fertilizers will be discussed along with ways to blend commercial fertilizers with manure in the 'do it yourself' fashion. The webinar will end with a perspective from the custom organic fertilizer industry.

An application for continuing education credit for Certified Crop Advisors (CCAs) and members of the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS) will be submitted.

Presenters for this webinar include:
  • Paulo Pagliari, University of Minnesota
  • Glen Arnold, Ohio State University
  • Blaize Holden, Sustane
  • Melissa Wilson, University of Minnesota (moderator)
Handouts (PDF format) will be available the day of the webinar at the live webinar information page.
