Welcome to University of Minnesota Extension's Nutrient Management Podcast. Each month we bring you the latest research in nutrient management for crops and how you can incorporate the latest tips and best management practices to your farm.

    Fall fertilizer outlook

    Fall fertilizer outlook

     In this episode of the Nutrient Management Podcast, four U of M researchers discuss fall fertilizer decisions.With rising prices, what are some ways growers can save on fertilizer costs this fall and next spring?With the dry conditions, is there anything growers need to be thinking about regarding nutrient availability or soil testing that might arise this fall if conditions stay dry? Is this a year that a soil nitrate test might be useful? Is there anything related to changes in the U of M fertilizer guidelines that growers should be aware of?Thank you to Minnesota's Agricultural Fertilizer Research and Education Council (AFREC) for supporting the podcast.

    Starter fertilizer issues

    Starter fertilizer issues

    In this episode of the Nutrient Management Podcast, three U of M researchers discuss starter fertilizer issues. What makes liquid starter fertilizers risky when applying on or near the seed? Should growers adjust their liquid in-furrow application rates in dry years? Is it a good idea to mix liquid fertilizer with fungicides or insecticides?Thank you to Minnesota's Agricultural Fertilizer Research and Education Council (AFREC) for supporting the podcast.

    Irrigation

    Irrigation

    In this episode of the Nutrient Management Podcast, four U of M researchers discuss irrigation and nutrient management.What is deficit irrigation and could there be an important role for it this year if it stays dry?What's the best approach to nitrogen fertilization in irrigated corn, and what should farmers keep in mind when applying N in irrigated fields?Is there an advantage to using fertigation over traditional fertilizer applications?What should growers know about variable rate irrigation and variable rate fertigation?Thank you to Minnesota's Agricultural Fertilizer Research and Education Council (AFREC) for supporting the podcast.

    Potassium management

    Potassium management

    In this episode of the Nutrient Management Podcast, three U of M researchers discuss potassium management. What key factors impact potassium availability in soils? Currently, Minnesota suggests banding potassium is more efficient than broadcast application. What are your thoughts on the band versus broadcast debate? There have been some questions over the winter related to potash application on soybean. What are some key takeaways from your research and should farmers consider alternative forms of potassium fertilizer?Thank you to Minnesota's Agricultural Fertilizer Research and Education Council (AFREC) for supporting the podcast.

    Continuous corn nutrient management

    Continuous corn nutrient management

    In this episode of the Nutrient Management Podcast, four U of M researchers discuss continuous corn nutrient management. What are the most challenging aspects of continuous corn production? Which key nutrients are impacted by residue breakdown and how can continuous corn growers manage residue to limit nutrient tie-up? What has recent research told us about how to maximize yield in a continuous corn system? Are there any other practices, not specifically related to fertilizer management, that may interact with a soil fertility program that growers should be aware of for continuous corn production? Thank you to Minnesota's Agricultural Fertilizer Research and Education Council (AFREC) for supporting the podcast.

    Wheat nutrient management

    Wheat nutrient management

    In this episode of the Nutrient Management Podcast, two U of M researchers and Dave Franzen from North Dakota State University discuss wheat nutrient management. Why is nitrogen important for wheat production? What makes managing nitrogen more challenging for wheat than for corn? What was the rationale behind recent changes to the wheat nitrogen guidelines in North Dakota? What are the best management options for ensuring high wheat yields that maintain protein near 14%?
