The Minnesota Corn Growers Association is encouraging farmers to bring in water samples from wells, ditches, streams or tile outlets for free nitrate screening at the Northwest Research & Outreach Center on Tuesday, May 24th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

The screening is completely confidential and takes about 20 minutes. Nitrate testing is an easy way for farmers to get a better idea about water conditions and nutrient loss on their own farms. University of Minnesota Extension educators will be on site to help answer questions and discuss best management practices.
