The first session will present a strategy for planning ahead to minimize fertilizer costs for 2023. Both large and small details for developing and implementing a plan for the entire cropping system will be presented. The value of manure and the role of management practices will address the impact of methods of incorporation on nitrogen conservation and benefits of past manure applications. Three sessions will focus on fertility strategies for our cropping systems specifically addressing corn, small grain and soybean and hay crops. The final session will update on advances in sensor technologies and analytical tools now making it possible for farmers to create management zones to allow informed decisions about crop inputs and nutrient management.
