NLID plot and fallow ground research helps reduce nutrient loss and improve soil health

In the sixth virtual field day, Wayne County farmer Fred Blessing joins researchers and agronomists to discuss a Nutrient Loss Inhibitor Demonstration (NLID) plot on his farm. The group also discusses additional research using cover crops and nutrient management to address fallow ground soil health concerns at the site. Partners from Illinois Farm Bureau, Wayne County Farm Bureau, Wabash Valley Service Company, Southern Illinois University Carbondale, and the Illinois Nutrient Research and Education Council all play a role in the research project. Find more details in the booklet, then watch the field day coverage.

Certified Crop Advisors can receive self-reported Continuing Education Units (CEUs) after watching the videos for each of these virtual field days. For more information, and to find the self-reporting form, visit www.certifiedcropadviser.org and click “Self-Report CEUs.”
