Nitrogen Smart is back for its fourth year

Join University of Minnesota Extension for Nitrogen Smart, a program for producers to help maximize economic return on nitrogen and minimize losses. View dates and locations.

Why attend Nitrogen Smart?

According to a survey of past participants:

  • Over 3 out of 4 of attendees changed at least one practice as a result of attending the meeting.
  • Our survey data of past participants and estimates show at least a $3,243 value for each attendee, when calculating acreage, rate reduction and potential increased yield in timing of application.

Attendees who complete the morning fundamentals session receive a three-year certificate. New this year: the Advanced Nitrogen Smart session, which focuses on manure management, is available in the afternoon to returning participants or to new participants that attend the morning fundamentals course. Nitrogen Smart is also available as an online course. Get more details on dates, locations and the online option.

The Nitrogen Smart trainings are presented by University of Minnesota Extension, funded by Minnesota Corn Growers, and hosted by the Minnesota Agriculture Water Resource Center at several locations throughout Minnesota. Pre-registration is not required and there is no registration fee.
