Event Description

NEW AgriSuite: PLATO (Phosphorus Loss Assessment Tool for Ontario). Facilitator: Kevin McKague, Engineer Specialist, OMAFRA 

We all know that phosphorus is a critical nutrient for crop growth.  You have also probably heard of the current concern over too much phosphorus reaching our rivers and lakes causing algal blooms and dead zones.  In this workshop you will receive hands-on-training in using a convenient on-line calculator called PLATO (Phosphorus Loss Assessment Tool for Ontario).  You will use PLATO to evaluate just how well you are doing at optimizing your phosphorus fertilizer sources (fertilizer, manure, biosolids, soil reserves, etc.) for both crop production and in preventing phosphorus from leaving your fields.  The session also introduces you to a handy on-line service for estimating annual soil erosion rates on your fields  - an input needed for the PLATO tool.   

A phone with internet connectivity or, better yet, a laptop or desktop computer with internet connectivity is all that is needed to attend this workshop and run scenarios through PLATO for your own farm fields.
