Managing Field Operations to Reduce Energy Costs Webinar

2012

Reducing energy use in cropping operations involves good maintenance of equipment, reducing tillage operations, ballasting tractors properly, nitrogen management and reducing grain drying energy use. This webinar will make the case for using minimum tillage, timely routine tractor maintenance, crop rotations with legumes and shorter maturity corn to reduce drying costs.

The speaker is Mark Hanna, an Extension Agricultural Engineer at Iowa State University specializing in mechanized field operations.

This webinar was supported by funding from NCR-SARE as part of a Professional Development project coordinated coordinated by Scott Sanford, Sr. Outreach Specialist at University of Wisconsin. Information is presented by a team of extension specialists in the North Central region.
