“We’ve got Robert Mullen talking about phosphorus, phosphorus management and soil fertility in general, he’ll probably hit on nitrogen as well, because it is really those two elements that giving us some problems as far as environmental concerns in Western Ohio,” said Watters. “Terry Niblack, Chair of the Plant Pathology Department on the OSU campus is an expert in nematodes, she’s going to talk to us about corn in the morning and then soybean cyst nematodes in the afternoon.”
