Posted in All Agriculture

Jeff Coulter, University of Minnesota Extension Corn Agronomists, Matt Yost, University of Minnesota Extension Research Assistant, and Michael Russelle, USDA-ARS Soil Scientist are conducting research on N credits from alfalfa to corn. This year, they have eight on-farm trials that are focused on predicting nitrogen credits from alfalfa to second-year corn.

On Monday, July 16, we are planning to hold a field day for the on-farm research site located near Fountain, MN (Gary Redalen Farm).

Registration is at 9:30 am with the event running from 9:45 am to 12:00 noon. The field day will start with indoor presentations at the Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center auditorium. After the indoor presentations, we will look at the plots and have a guided plot tour on the Gary Redalen Farm.

Jerrold Tesmer, Extension Educator, Fillmore & Houston Counties, will moderate the indoor event at the Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center. At this event, there would be presentations on nitrogen management in alfalfa-corn rotations by Jeff Coulter and Matt Yost. As well as a presentation on manure management by Jose Hernandez, Extension Educator – Livestock Nutrient Management . We also anticipate having a presentation on alfalfa management/IPM by Lisa Behnken, Regional Extension Educator.

This event is FREE and open to the public (no registration is required). For more information contact Jerry Tesmer phone: 507-765-3896/507-725-5807, email: tesme001@umn.edu or Jeff Coulter, phone: 612-625-1796, email: coult077@umn.edu
