University of Minnesota Extension
Farm Forum

Smart manure management — innovative practices that are showing great potential to improve our food production system — will be the topic of discussion at the SWROC’s March Advancing Ag webinar on March 24 at 11 a.m. To register for this free webinar, visit z.umn.edu/advancing-ag.

Associate Professor Paulo Pagliari will lead a panel discussion on innovative manure management practices, including the benefits of injecting liquid manure into cover crops, side-dressing emerged corn with liquid manure, and water quality and manure management. Panelists include:

  • Glen Arnold, associate professor and manure nutrient management specialist at Ohio State University.
  • Christine Brown, field crops sustainability specialist at the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs.
  • Melissa Wilson, assistant professor and manure nutrient management specialist at University of Minnesota.

This diverse panel of researchers will engage in a dialogue with one another and take questions from participants. Participants are encouraged to submit questions upon registration or to come to the webinar with questions in mind.

Advancing Ag events are free to attend, but participants must pre-register at z.umn.edu/advancing-ag. The webinar will be recorded and posted on YouTube at a later date. Certified crop advisers can self-apply for CEUs.
