In this episode of the Nutrient Management Podcast, three U of M researchers discuss soil management and nutrient issues.

  • How do erosion and tillage practices impact nutrients in the soil and nutrient management? 
  • After a dry spring and summer, what should growers know about soil and nutrient management heading into the fall? Is deep tillage to break compaction a good idea this year?
  • How can farmers better manage soils to avoid nutrient issues? Are cover crops a good idea this year?
  • Fabian Fernandez, Extension nitrogen management specialist
  • Anna Cates, Extension soil health specialist
  • Jodi DeJong-Hughes, Extension educator - Willmar
