Nitrogen Management Reporting Workshop for Organic Production @ Norton Hall

Organic nitrogen management is particularly challenging because nitrogen from organic sources, such as compost, soil organic matter, cover crops, crop residue and soil amendments, must first be converted by microbes to become plant-available forms. Matching plant-available nitrogen to crop demand is necessary in order to provide sufficient nitrogen for optimal yields while reducing the risk of environmental pollution. Furthermore, nitrogen reporting requirements require information in plant-available nitrogen as opposed to total nitrogen applied. As a group, we will complete a comprehensive nitrogen budget, through which you will be given guidelines and calculations for estimating plant-available N. This will be directly translatable for use with your own compost, soil report results, amendments, etc. The last segment of the workshop will include an opportunity to work on your personal nitrogen budget and receive feedback from Margaret and Patricia. Participants are encouraged to bring information from their farm in order to use this information.
