Overview:

Farmers have been exploring new and creative ways to manage nitrogen fertilizer in recent years. Remote sensing, crop growth models, in-season soil testing and variable rate application technology have all drawn significant interest for the potential to add profit, while reducing environmental impact. Farmers have had to work diligently to determine the value of these technologies, all while keeping water quality issues in mind. Nitrogen Smart is an educational program designed to provide the information necessary to evaluate nitrogen fertilizer options.

Topics Included:

  • Sources of nitrogen
  • Ways to reduce losses
  • Managing nitrogen in drainage systems
  • Implications of Minnesota’s Nutrient Reduction Strategy and Nitrogen Fertilizer Management Plan
