    Learn about soil fertility in Iowa State University Extension and Outreach’s Soil Fertility and Nutrient Management Short Course.

    AMES, Iowa – Crop advisers and producers who want to take a deeper look at the principles of soil, soil fertility, and nutrient management should consider registering for the two-day Soil Fertility and Nutrient Management Short Course Feb. 25-26.

    Sponsored by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, this popular event will include topics related to Iowa soils, soil sampling and testing, plant nutrients, liming, site-specific nutrient management, and manure management.

    “This is a chance for people who want to learn more about the details of soil fertility and management, and get more in-depth into the science,” said John Sawyer, professor and extension specialist in soil fertility and nutrient management at Iowa State.

    Sawyer will give talks on essential plant nutrients and nutrient plans, cation exchange, soil pH and liming, nitrogen dynamics and management, secondary and micronutrients, and he will take part in a round-table discussion at the close of the event, Feb. 26.

    Other presenters include Antonio Mallarino, professor and extension specialist in agronomy at Iowa State; Lee Burras, professor of agronomy at Iowa State; and Joel DeJong, field agronomist with ISU Extension and Outreach, covering topics such as soil testing, phosphorus and potassium management, environmental phosphorus management, soil formation and soil survey, and manure nutrient management.

    The short course will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn, 1325 Dickinson Ave., Ames.

    Nutrient management and soil and water management credits will be available, subject to approval by the Certified Crop Advisers Board. There will be 11.5 nutrient management credits, and one soil and water management continuing education credit.

    Class size is limited to 40 participants and pre-registration is required to attend. Registrations are accepted on a first-come, first-paid basis.

    Lunch is included both days with registration. The registration is $275 before midnight, Feb. 17. Pre-registration is required.

    Lodging is not included with course registration and is the responsibility of the attendee. A block of rooms is available at the Hilton Garden Inn for this course at $129 per night plus tax. Contact the hotel at (515)-233-8000 to make reservations and mention the ISU soils course to be included in the room block.
