The Northwest Ohio Precision Ag Technology Day will offer farmers and crop consultants a chance to focus on nutrient management. Topics include:

  • Soil phosphorus recommendations
  • Soil nitrogen rate and source considerations
  • Nitrogen timing and placement strategies
  • Tools for nitrogen management

In the afternoon, participants will be able to attend field demonstrations from industry professionals that will focus on nutrient placement and timing.

Certified Crop Adviser (CCA) continuing education credits are available, with an emphasis on soil and water and on nutrient management. The program also qualifies as three hours of Ohio Certified Livestock Manager credits and three hours of Agricultural Fertilization Certification training to comply with Ohio’s new agricultural fertilization law, which requires farmers who apply fertilizer to more than 50 acres to become certified with the Ohio Department of Agriculture.

Registration for the event is $25 by July 31. Registration on site the day of the event is $40. Details about the event, including a downloadable, mailable registration form and a link for online registration, can be found at www.fulton.osu.edu.
