Finalizing Your Agronomic Inputs for 2022

On Thursday, March 10th, UW-Madison Division of Extension will be offering an in-person event, “Finalizing Your Agronomic Inputs for 2022”. With growers facing record high fertilizer prices and herbicide shortages as we move towards the 2022 growing season, alternative approaches for nutrient and weed management may be key for farm profitability this season.

In this workshop, farmers will hear about strategies for reducing dependence on short-supplied herbicides by shifting focus to pre-plant and emergence weed management strategies; how to tap soil resources to make their fertilizer dollars stretch further under high prices; and the effects management decisions have on water quality. The event will feature presentations from Rodrigo Werle (Extension Specialist and Weed Scientist for UW-Madison), Mike Ballweg (UW-Madison Extension Regional Crops & Soils Agent for Fond du Lac, Sheboygan, Washington & Ozaukee Counties), and Chelsea Zegler (UW-Madison Extension Ag & Water Quality Educator).

UW-Extension faculty staff has identified this topic as a need among their agricultural stakeholders across Wisconsin and hope that this event will help farmers make informed decisions on their nutrient and weed management approaches for the 2022 growing season. The event will start at 10:30 AM and run until 2:30 PM. We ask that all interested parties please register for the event by Tuesday, March 8th.
