This is a 4-week/4-session webinar-based course in advanced 4R nutrient management that combines the presentation of general 4R information with the application of the 4R principles in multiple field scenarios. The webinars will address issues associated with priority watersheds, water quality, erosion prediction tools, phosphorus management concerns, and drainage water management. To enable attendees to better apply the principles of 4R nutrient management, the course will provide the opportunity for open interaction between the moderator, the presenters, and the participants. Participants will learn to develop 4R nutrient management alternatives for multiple field scenarios using information on field conditions, current management and production systems, known challenges, and available nutrient sources. Field maps and other data will be provided to the participants to help them fully understand the issues to consider in the development of 4R nutrient management alternatives.

  • Week 1: Nutrient Management Impacts and National Standards—From the Large Watershed to the Field Level
  • Week 2: Science-based Tools to Better Understand Soil, Water, and Nutrient Transport
  • Week 3: Edge-of-field Nutrient Runoff Management and Best Practices
  • Week 4: Putting the 4R Principles Together for Scenario-based Fields

The NutrientStar team is excited to share the story behind the development of the NutrientStar program, designed to collect and share information about the performance of nutrient management products and tools. Speakers will demonstrate how interested farmers and advisors can access and make use of the compiled online information to make more informed management recommendations and decisions. Presenters will also discuss how the NutrientStar team engages with industry and academia to assemble guidelines and protocols to improve the quality of research and data collection on tool performance.  Of special interest will be a new geospatial framework, developed by NutrientStar partners, that helps guide the siting and interpretation of field trial research. Presenters intend for this overview webinar to provide the gateway to further interaction with the NutrientStar team and Science Review Panel and will offer contact information and a menu of options for those interested in follow up.

The cost for this webinar is free to members and certified professionals and $25.00 for all other individuals. Register now!
