Hosted by UNL this year, the free workshop will feature water and nitrogen management concerns such as crop modeling, climatology and N unpredictability, soil health and NUE indicators, and new technologies.
Laila Puntel's focus will be on improving efficiency and profitability of soil nutrient management, particularly through the use of precision ag technologies. She will be conducting research at university centers and one-on-one with growers through on-farm research.
Roger Elmore will retire June 30 after 38 years of teaching, research and extension work — more than 29 years at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. He and his peers look back on a lifelong career working with farmers and consultants.
