This educational program assists forage producers in making decisions on managing pastures and hay ground. Topics include using maps to determine physical soil properties, estimate current and potential production, and form management units. This information is then used to take soil samples for fertility testing and to make agronomic, and economic input decisions. Part of this process includes the option of selecting to focus work on your best field first. This can help producers prioritize funding for inputs and time spent on multiple fields. At the completion of the program custom reports will be provided which will be useful in future classes and consultations on forage production.
