CCA – CM .5 & SW .5                      The drastic decline of soil organic matter (SOM) in arable lands worldwide due to
States: N/A
                                         carbon turnover and cropping systems, has resulted in seriously low levels of SOM
                                         in today’s soils. Research shows the importance of microbial process in soil and
                                         plant metabolism for the protection of organic carbon in agricultural soils and
                                         sustainable cropping systems. Over the past 17 years, research trials were
                                         established to evaluate the efficacy of different commercial humates products
                                         derived from lignite and Leonardite in potato crop production. Data from humic acid
                                         (HA) trials showed that different cropping systems responded differently to different
                                         products in relation to yield and quality. Collectively, the consistent use of good
                                         quality products in our replicated research plots in different years resulted in a yield
                                         increase from 11.4 percent to the maximum of 22.3 percent.
 1:30     PM   -      2:30   PM   Ways to Increase P Efficiency: Getting the Most for Your Money – Robert

                                         reexamination of how fertilizer is used. The geologic sources of P and how it is
                                         transformed to fertilizer will be reviewed. The essential role of P in plan nutrition will
                                         be covered. Techniques to improve P fertilizer efficiency will be covered… including
                                         placement, P sources, foliar fertilization, and various additives.

CEU’s:                                    SPEAKER LOCKED IN

States: N/A
                                         functions. A greater understanding of sulfur and its impact on crops grown in the
                                         PNW can enhance crop efficiency and productivity. Micronutrient availability is
                                         influenced by interactions with other nutrients and soil pH. Therefore, a balance
                                         between all essential nutrients is required to optimize crop productivity.
 4:00     PM   -      5:00   PM   Nutrient Management to Enhance Crop Performance and Protect the

States: N/A
                                         soils and protect the environment. Do you add more fertilizer to poorly performing
                                         areas to increase yield or less fertilizer in order to reduce costs and reduce excess
                                         nutrient application? Which method best protects ground water from excessive
                                         nitrogen and phosphorus? How can you improve water infiltration in bad areas?
                                         How does site specific application change the recommended rates of N, P, K, S,
                                         micronutrients, and elemental sulfur?

                                Jeff Miller, Miller Research
CEU’s:                                   SPEAKER LOCKED IN
CCA – PM-1                             Discuss fungicides labeled for the control of late blight and early blight, with
                                       emphasis on proper fungicide selection for disease control efficacy and managing
                                       fungicide resistance in pathogen populations. Timing of fungicide applications will
                                       be stressed, along with the importance of tank-mixing for resistance management.

CEU’s:                                 SPEAKER LOCKED IN
CCA – PM-1                             Stripe rust of wheat severely impacted grain production in the 2011 growing season.
                                       We will discuss the environmental conditions that favored the development of the
                                       epidemic, the utilization of fungicides to control the disease and protect the crop,
                                       and management strategies for future production. Management strategies for other
                                       problematic diseases will also be discussed.

                                       rate application of fertilizer, and GPS guided application can help farmers apply
                                       fertilizers and chemicals in a way that targets less productive areas of fields and
                                       prevents over-fertilization or treatment of more productive areas. These practices
                                       are not only beneficial to water quality, but can also be of economic benefit to the
                                       farmer. Irrigation water management using soil moisture monitoring in conjunction
                                       with evapotranspiration modeling using the US Bureau of Reclamation’s AgriMet
                                       service can also help maximize irrigation efficiency and prevent leaching of nutrients
                                       into ground water. Information explaining high intensity nutrient management and
                                       irrigation water management will be present.
11:00   AM    -   12:00   PM    Reducing Honey Bee Damage from Pesticides – Reed Findlay, U of I
CEU’s:                                SPEAKER LOCKED IN
CCA – PM-1                             This presentation will cover the many ways farmers and pesticide applicators can
                                       reduce the number of honey bee colonies they damage or kill through the
                                       inadvertent non-target application of pesticides. We will specifically address the use
                                       of carbaryl, carbofuran, chlorpyrifos, and other insecticides. When these pesticides
                                       are used, the form they are used in, and how long they are used affect the impact
                                       they have on bee colonies. The importance of good communications between the
                                       pesticide applicator and the beekeeper will be emphasized.
 1:30   PM    -    2:30   PM    2012 Fumigant Label Requirements – Scott Larkin, Taminco/Simplot
