Those different. Micro organisms down through here. In comparison here's a piece of of of soil -- clawed its oil from. Just across the road here and crop fields if you look here we've got a lot of -- let's -- on here and ultimately this was taken from the inroads. But the full right here we really were looking at a mass social structure . The structure here is is very very difficult to. To break bill's very very very tough and if you look. You get
Farm Science Review, Day Two
Dean of the Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences, Dr. Bruce McPheron talks to Jordan Anderson about the Ohio Farm Science Review.that's run by one of our colleges today. It's just today an incredible opportunity to see a snapshot of what's new and what's happening in the world of agricultural production . Great and this date you on Wednesday. What the numbers like yesterday he's already got a big product here like we're expecting numbers like. Well you know over the course of the week. I've been saying your 125000. Is what we expect I also like to say that's an eight to four million people. But yesterday we were just north of 41000 it was a good starting day.

That's what brought that out here today and we spread debt to brain -- spreader right here. And where they can variable
Nutrient Management by Manure Sampling
Amanda Douridas, an Agriculture & Natural Resources Extension Educator from The Ohio State University, discusses how manure sampling can assist producers on how much nutrients their crop needs and how to abide environmental concerns for over application.and determine why you wanna -- -- because you can't just get nitrogen phosphorus and potassium breaking yet. That micro nutrients as well. And then I am making sure they get a good representative sample . From there storage said this is why it when -- applying it's a lot easier to pull a representative sample . How I have very then. You might need to adjust your application. If you applied to little once you get that sample
