The final workshop in Prairie Rivers of Iowa’s “Nutrients in November” workshop series will be held on November 17th from 6-8 PM in the Gilbert Franklin Community Room at Gilbert City Hall. The workshop will feature RetaiN Iowa: On-farm Nitrate Testing Kits.

Jamie Benning from Iowa State University Extension and Outreach will show how to use a simple test that farmers and landowners can use to measure the amount of nitrates leaving field tiles. Attendees will be able to take home a free nitrate testing kit to try on their own land!

Admission is free and will include light refreshments.

Please RSVP online at www.prrcd.org/workshops or to Hanna Bates, Watershed Coordinator via phone at 515-232-0048 or via email at hbates@prrcd.org.
