COLUMBIA, Mo. – Registration is open for the 2014 Advanced Nutrient Management Course, Feb. 3-4 at the University of Missouri Bradford Research Center, Columbia.
MU Extension sponsors the two-day course.
“The course will be of special benefit to farms using animal manure as a fertilizer,” said John Lory, MU extension nutrient management specialist. “It is highly recommended for manure applicators and those who write nutrient management plans in Missouri.”
Some of the highlights include presentations on regulatory update, soil test phosphorus recommendations, cover crops, improving fescue pastures and value of manure compared to fertilizer nutrients.
Sessions on new technology will discuss unmanned aerial vehicles (drones), pit foaming, nitrogen application using sensors, spreaders and logistics, odor control and new Web tools.
The course has been approved for up to 12 continuing education credits (CEUs) for Certified Crop Advisers, for confined animal feeding operation and wastewater operators, and for agricultural engineers. Details on CEUs are available at nmplanner.missouri.edu/training.
Preregistration is required. Cost is $200 for those registering on or before Jan. 27. After that, cost increases to $230.
Contact Hannah McClure at 573-884-6311 or McClureH@missouri.edu to register.
Agenda and additional course information are available at nmplanner.missouri.edu/training or from Lory at 573-884-7815 or LoryJ@missouri.edu.
