9:30 - 10:30 Nutrient Management in Manures
Sponsored by: SFP

Matt Werner, Research Coordinator

Learn how you can improve nutrient management in applied manures by adding a revolutionary product called More Than Manure (MTM) Nutrient Manager. On-farm research has shown MTM increases the phosphorus and nitrogen availability of the manures you apply as a fertilizer and on average farmers have seen a 9.5 bushel per acre increase using MTM with manure on corn trials. In addition to agronomic benefits, MTM can reduce crusting and solids within the pits or lagoons and can also decrease the ammonia levels in confinement operations. Join us to learn how MTM can improve your manure from the pit up.
