Farmers now have access to some of the latest agricultural research, from the convenience of their smartphones. Purdue Extension is releasing a series of articles focusing on soil and water in a mobile-friendly format.
According to the Indiana Farm Bureau, the new mobile series is a result of the Nutrient Management/Soil Health Strategy developed through a partnership between Purdue Extension and Indiana’s ag groups. A big part of the strategy is to take current research and put it into a format that’s easy for farmers and their consultants to use. The thought is, if farmers can access that information more easily, they will be better able to improve their practices to reduce the loss of nutrients to water.
The first articles in the new “Soil and Water” series can be found here.
