Friday, August 11, 2017 at 2:30 pm EDT - Presented by Curt Gooch, Rebecca Larson, Mahmoud Sharara

When most people think of anaerobic digestion systems, they think about the cost of the start-up of such systems. In this webinar, presenters will discuss opportunities and the value of these systems as well as the challenges that may come along when using an anaerobic...

The Use of Runoff Risk Advisory Tools for Water Quality Protection

Friday, June 16, 2017 at 2:30 pm EDT - Presented by Nichole Embertson, Zachary Easton

Despite decades of efforts to reduce non-point source nutrient pollution, excessive nutrient losses continue from agricultural lands, contributing to water quality impairment. Wet, temperate and/or humid regions of the US, increasingly experience frequent runoff events that...

On-Farm Nutrient Management Research: Replacing Commercial Sidedress Nitrogen with Liquid Livestock Manure on Emerged Corn

Friday, May 19, 2017 at 2:30 pm EDT - Presented by Glen Arnold

Livestock producers can more fully utilize the nutrients in livestock manure to reduce purchased fertilizer costs if they can apply manure when crops need the nutrients. Better capturing manure nutrients can reduce phosphorus and nitrogen losses into surface water bodies....
