The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) invites farmers and other agricultural professionals to hear about the latest research and techniques in nutrient, soil and water management at a free conference on Feb. 19 at the Bigwood Event Center in Fergus Falls, MN.

The conference, scheduled for 8:30 a.m. to 3:10 p.m., will bring together farmers, agricultural supply and service consultants, university extension specialists, crop advisers, researchers, and government officials. This is the seventh year MDA and its partners have offered the conference.

This year, the conference focus is on nutrient management tools, micro-nutrients, soil/root interactions, and water quality. With farmers facing volatile fertilizer prices and increased commodity prices, this will be an excellent opportunity to network with others who are interested in maximizing efficiency, profit enhancement and risk reduction.
