In addition to the significant increase in fertilizer prices over the past decade, specialty crop producers are under increasing regulatory pressure to improve nutrient management practices to protect drinking and environmental water quality. Nutrient management is among the issues at the forefront of agriculture today. Nutrient pollution of water resources is driving an increased focus on nutrient management from all government levels. This webinar is meant to provide an overview of the current regulatory environment and also options and useful resources available to growers for guidance regarding crop nutrient demands and key elements of nutrient management.
Join Parry Klassen, Executive Director of the East San Joaquin Water Quality Coalition (ESJWQC) and Karen Lowell, Central Coast Agronomist with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) to learn about today’s regulatory environment and nutrient management planning and tools.
