Dr. Fernando Garcia will host a free webinar on Wednesday, February 24. Garcia, director IPNI Latin America-Southern Cone, will discuss Looking for Sustainability: Long-Term Fertilization in the Pampas of Argentina. Click here to register. Can’t attend? We’ll post it later on our YouTube page.
This booklet is a practical guide to forage production developed by Dr. Don Ball, Dr. Carl Hoveland and Dr. Garry Lacefield, authors of the widely popular book Southern Forages – Modern Concepts for Forage Crop Management.
The 56 page Pocket Guide is packed with useful facts and reference lists related to plant characteristics, fertilizer and nutrients, stand establishment, animal requirements, grazing, and forage quality, including hay and silage. Visit our online store to purchase.
Are you a graduate student attending a degree-granting institution located in any country with an IPNI program? Candidates for either the M.S. or Ph.D. degrees, who are enrolled in a program of graduate study as of the application deadline, are eligible.
Priority will be given to the relevance of the proposed research in support of IPNI’s mission. Students in the disciplines of soil and plant sciences including agronomy, horticulture, ecology, soil fertility, soil chemistry, crop physiology, and other areas related to plant nutrition are encouraged to apply.

Congratulations to Dr. Cynthia Grant! Since 1986, Grant has worked as a research scientist at the Agriculture Canada Research Station in Brandon, Manitoba, Canada. Read more about her accomplishments and contributions to the field of plant nutrition here. For more information on IPNI Awards, visit our website.
In August I attended the Nutrient Reduction Strategy Field Day in Gilmore City, Iowa, USA. The next day I visited the 4R research site with Cliff Snyder, IPNI’s Nitrogen program director. The research site has 32 individually subsurface drained plots for subsurface drainage water quality evaluation. You can read more about the research project here.
The International Plant Nutrition Institute (IPNI) has selected the winners of the 2015 Scholar Awards program. A total of 37 graduate students, representing 13 countries, were chosen as IPNI Scholar Award recipients. Each winner receives the equivalent of US$2,000.
“The selection committee was encouraged by the number and quality of applications it received,” said Terry L. Roberts, IPNI President. “Many countries and institutions were represented. The students are doing impressive work and will contribute immensely to the field of plant nutrition,” said Roberts.
Graduate students attending a degree-granting institution located in any country within an IPNI regional program are eligible. The award is available to graduate students in science programs relevant to plant nutrition science and the management of crop nutrients including: agronomy, horticulture, ecology, soil fertility, soil chemistry, crop physiology, environmental science, and others.
