The event runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., with check-in at 9:30 a.m.
Other topics that will be covered are the impact of herbicide residue in manure being used as fertilizer and manure spreader technology to adjust the application rate automatically, monitor the weight of the manure in the spreader and integrate variable-application
