Each year the Nutrient Management Initiative (NMI) reports the results of the past season's on-farm field trials. Organizing and evaluating the results can be difficult with many variables to consider, including different farming practices, field variability, and weather patterns that can influence results. The purpose of NMI is to provide farmers with an opportunity to compare different nitrogen practices on their own farms and evaluate other trials from the same region. The NMI can go a long way to help relay the positive efforts farmers are already making on their farms to the public, and serve as a great tool for discussion on ideas to help benefit yields and water quality in Minnesota.
The NMI reports dating back to 2009 are located in the Minnesota Digital Water Research Library. Direct links to the most recent reports are listed below.
