K-State Soil Fertility Schools for North Central and Northwest Kansas

Share Tweet Email

With fertilizer being one of the most expensive components of your cropping system, it is increasingly important for producers to manage their agricultural inputs properly.  To address the topic of nutrient management, K-State Research and Extension, has scheduled four regional programs during January 2024. These schools have been designed to help producers understand the fertilizer soil relationships to achieve a greater return from fertilizer investment, especially in this farm environment.

January 23 – Smith Center – 9:30 a.m. to NOON – Christian Church

January 23 – Ellsworth – 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.–  221 W Douglas Recreational Center Meeting Room

January 25 – Goodland – 9:30 a.m. to NOON (MT) – 4-H Building

January 25 – Jennings – 3:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. – Community Building (main floor)


Dr. Lucas Haag, K-State NW Region agronomist, Dr. Dorivar Ruiz Diaz, K-State Fertility specialist, and local District Extension Agents will present the schools. Topics will include K-State research updates, soil sampling, using biologicals in your fertility program, fertilizer placement, N and P management updates, drought impacts, and a question-and-answer session. So be sure to bring all your questions with you! 2.5 CCA credits have been applied for.

There is no cost for the schools; however, pre-registration is requested by Friday, January 19, for all schools. You can register online at https://kstate.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_cMDQEWUMUu4LP6e, or at your local Extension Office. A minimum of 10 pre-registered producers are needed for each of the schools. Hope to see you there!
