Managing nitrogen will be Agronomy Day focus

It appears that the frequency of wet springs with excessive rain events in late spring and early summer are requiring farmers to rethink nitrogen (N) applications to corn crops. This is particularly true on fine textured heavy soils found in eastern Wisconsin, where saturated soils can lead to significant N losses.

“The Agronomy Field Day – Managing Nitrogen for Maximum Returns,” is planned for Wednesday, Aug. 16 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Fly-By Acres LLC, The Kroepliens, W2781 County O, Sheboygan Falls.

Presentation topics and speakers include:

“Reducing the Risk of N Losses by Splitting N Applications in Corn” and “How Late Can we Apply N and Still Get an Economic Return?” will be discussed by: Carrie Laboski, UW-Madison Soil Science Department and Mike Ballweg, Agricultural Agent – Crops and Soils, UW-Extension – Sheboygan County.

“Key Ways to Control Nutrient and Soil Loss from Your Farm” will be discussed by Amber Radatz, UW-Discovery Farms.

The field day is hosted by: Fly-By Acres LLC, Sheboygan County Forage Council, Midwest Forage Association and the UWExtension Sheboygan County.

For reservations/information contact the Sheboygan County UW –Extension Office at 920-459-5904 or email tammy.zorn@ There is no fee to attend the field day. The field day will be held rain or shine. More information is available on-line at: http: //
