Do you feel you are taking a responsible approach to nutrient management on your farm? Or do you know a no-tiller who takes an efficient, environmentally sound view of fertilizer application? If so, we’re encouraging you to nominate yourself or that no-tiller by Friday, Oct. 31 to be considered for the Responsible Nutrient Management Practitioners Program.
The 7th annual program will recognize the practices of three no-tillers during the National No-Tillage Conference in Cincinnati, Ohio, on Jan. 16, 2015. All three recipients will receive free travel and hotel accommodations courtesy of Agro-Culture Liquid Fertilizers, as well as free registration ($359 value) fromNo-Till Farmer to attend the 23rd annual no-till event.
The three individuals will share their fertility practices with attendees during a panel discussion at the Friday noon luncheon. In addition, all three no-tillers’ practices will be shared in an article in the April 2015 issue of No-Till Farmer.
Nominations will be accepted until Friday, October 31.
