The Fertilizer Institute (TFI) is working with the Agricultural Nutrient Policy Council (ANPC) to promote an upcoming webinar on “Managing Nutrients after the Drought.” The drought of 2012 will be remembered for its devastating effects on crops across a huge swath of North America’s most productive soils. While late summer rains eased conditions for many, water resources are still in critically short supply across large areas. Following such a difficult situation, it will pay to re-examine nutrient management practices as farmers plan for their 2013 crops.

You are invited to join a panel of subject matter experts on Wednesday, Sept. 26 from 12 noon to 1:30 pm Central Time as they discuss what farmers and their advisers should consider in regards to nutrient management. A variety of situations will be presented that will help farmers make the most of crop inputs while being good stewards of soil and water resources.

Confirmed panelists include:
• Dr. Jim Camberato, Department of Agronomy, Purdue University
• Dr. John Grove, Department of Plant and Soil Sciences, University of Kentucky
• Dr. Scott Murrell, North Central Director, International Plant Nutrition Institute

Certified Crop Advisers, Certified Professional Agronomists, American Society of Agronomy members, farmers, the media, and other members of the agricultural community are invited to take part in this special program. It is being offered at no charge, but pre-registration is required. Continuing education units (CEUs) are available. Once registered, participants will receive a confirmation email with instructions about how to connect to the webinar.
