Will harvest limit fertilizer sales and impact fall application?
There were a few crop consultants and private companies represented at the conference, and ag professionals are the ones who are being pressured to do the right thing. If the most trusted ag professionals buy into new technology and programs, they can spread the word and practices for adoption by their customers and clients.
In my way of thinking, change in nutrient management and fertilizer application of new fertilizer technology products must occur, and we might be closer to required changes than a lot of farmers and their third-party advisors think.
Mandatory change just might be around the corner as shown by each of the states in the Mississippi River watershed being required to develop nutrient management plans. The expectations or goals are extremely high or aggressive in each of these plans to meet the reduction in nutrient runoff.
Those outdoor trade shows where I saw all that new equipment and technology was interesting, but more innovations will be needed to assist farmers in meeting goals. Changes in philosophy, attitude and practices will be necessary by farmers.
