Nutrient class set for GC farmers
nutrient class
A soil probe collects a core of soil in a corn field. Soil sampling is the only reliable way to know what nutrients are available in soil. The Green County Land and Water Conservation Department loans soil probes to farmers and landowners to sample their land.
MONROE — Farmers that are interested in learning more about nutrient management and how they can use a plan on their farm are encouraged to attend farmer education classes this winter. The Green County Nutrient Management Farmer Education Program is designed so that the participant acquires soil samples in the fall, have classroom time in the winter learning the background of nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium management, and complete a nutrient management plan by spring. Nutrient management plans are useful to all farmers, both with livestock and without.
