The importance in fall soil testing, split applications, new technologies and a fundamental change in how Illinois will fund nutrient research were among topics at the recent Keep If for the Crop by 2025 Conference. 
Dan Schaefer, Illinois Council for Best Management Practices nutrient stewardship director, said a focus of the meeting was to recommend to fertilizer dealers best management practices for growers to utilize. 
“It’s about nitrogen management mostly in these watersheds and trying to promote split applications of nitrogen,” he said. 
KIC is focusing its efforts in the Lake Bloomington, Lake Vermilion, Lake Decatur, Illinois Basin of the Vermilion River, Salt Fork Vermilion River and Lake Mauvaissee Terra watersheds, all sources of public drinking water. 
Fall nitrogen application is common practice in many portions of Illinois, and one of the KIC goals is to lower rates in the fall and then apply another increment of nitrogen in the spring, followed by another application of N into the crop.
