Montana Wheat Farmers Improve Nutrient Use Efficiency Through Research Collaboration

(bright music) – My name is Richard Engel. My title is, I am associate professor of soil science in the Department of Land Resources and Environmental Sciences at Montana State University. The reason why we conducted this project was to actually do some on-farm measurements to determine how much nitrogen is being lost following these … “Montana Wheat Farmers Improve Nutrient Use Efficiency Through Research Collaboration”

Nutrient management improves forage, water quality on organic dairy

For our nutrient management program, we’ve been working with a lot of the dairies. They’ve gotten to work with an N-R-C-S technical service provider. He’s basically a crop consultant that goes out and helps them take their soil samples, which the farmers are already doing on their own, but that helps them get a close-up … “Nutrient management improves forage, water quality on organic dairy”

Model sugarcane farm highlighting nutrient management research

At Keith Dugas’s farm representatives from government agencies we’re getting an up-close look at one of the two model farms established by a grant from the Patrick F Taylor Foundation. The farm is being used to show techniques that can improve the environment and make the floor more productive by using inputs more efficiently. You … “Model sugarcane farm highlighting nutrient management research”

Taylor Foundation awards the LSU AgCenter a grant to study nutrient management

Essential nutrients such as nitrogen help crops grow and deliver high yields. But these same nutrients can cause problems when they leave the farm through runoff and erosion. To reduce the amount of nutrients entering rivers and reaching the Gulf of Mexico, the Patrick F. Taylor Foundation has awarded the LSU AgCenter $1.4 million to … “Taylor Foundation awards the LSU AgCenter a grant to study nutrient management”

Taylor Foundation grant will fund study of nutrient management

To reduce the amount of nutrients entering rivers and reaching the Gulf of Mexico, the Patrick F. Taylor Foundation has awarded the LSU AgCenter $1.4 million to fund a four-year project to study the issue. The goal of the study–. We have a great reduction or possibly the elimination of hypoxia and the dead zone … “Taylor Foundation grant will fund study of nutrient management”
