Making sound soil fertility management decisions is an important part of successful crop production, on both an economic and environmental level. Iowa State University Extension and Outreach will offer a two-day short course focusing on principles of soils, soil fertility and nutrient management to help crop production professionals make better decisions. Highlights include sampling and testing; pH and liming; essential, secondary and micronutrients; nitrogen dynamics; manure management; and more. The small class size allows for increased discussion and interaction with Extension and Outreach specialists.
