The event gives producers opportunities to learn how to calibrate manure spreaders and calculate application rates to maximize crop yield and profitability.
Side-by-side comparisons of manure spreaders with both horizontal and vertical beaters will be part of the demonstration, along with low-disturbance injection systems, GPS technology, and odor-reducing biofilters.
South Dakota State University specialists will share research on the effects of manure on crop production. The event is free. Local conservation districts will sponsor a lunch.
The deadline to register for the event is July 27 and those interested in taking part can call 605-996-1564, ext. 5, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The farm is located six miles west and three miles south of Beresford.
