Getting More For Less From The Fertilizer You Apply
No-tillers can’t afford to waste money on applied fertilizer. Neither can the agriculture industry continue to watch these resources negatively impact watersheds without expecting possible severe regulations. Nobody knows that any better than no-tiller Mike Starkey of Brownsburg, Ind., whose farm lies right at the base of the Eagle Creek Watershed that supplies the city of Indianapolis its drinking water.
Join Mike Starkey on Tuesday, November 26, at 7 p.m. Central time (8 p.m. Eastern) as he reviews what he’s learned from onfarm trials and the changes he’s made to his fertility-management practices throughout the years. You’ll learn how he’s been able to increase corn and soybean yields with less applied fertilizer and reduce his impact on the environment. This No-Till Farmer webinar is being made possible with support from Agro-Culture Liquid Fertilizers.
Here are some of the things that Starkey will address in this exclusive webinar.
- Recent onfarm strip trial results that compare the performance of different types of applied fertilizer, including 10-34-0, 28%, liquid fertilizers and/or thiosulfate.
- Changes that Starkey has made to his applied fertilizer program in the past decade, including a thorough look at timing of application, placement and rates.
- The impact of cover-cropping systems on his applied nitrogen rates.
Our 5-year No-Till Operational Benchmark Study reveals that applied fertilizer consistently ranks as one of the most costly inputs for no-tillers. Check in with No-Till Farmer, Mike Starkey and Agro-Culture Liquid Fertilizers on Tuesday, November 26, at 7 p.m. Central time (8 p.m. Eastern) to get a better understanding of managing fertility for efficacy and efficiency.
