Field to Market Calculator Workshop

Field to Market Fieldprint Calculator Workshop Feb. 24 in Sidney

Nebraska Extension is hosting a free workshop for farmers on Feb. 24 at Sidney featuring the Field to Market Fieldprint® Calculator.

The Field to Market Fieldprint® Calculator allows farmers to document sustainability of a given field or farm, using yield, erosion, irrigation efficiency, energy use, and greenhouse gas emissions as measures.

Participants will learn how to quantify these environmental indicators, some of which affect profitability, and then compare them with national, state and local averages.

The workshop will last from 9 a.m. until noon at the South Platte Natural Resources District Office, 551 Parkland Drive in Sidney. Register for the workshop by Feb. 21 by calling the Cheyenne County Extension Office at 308-254-4455.

Participants need to complete a Fieldprint® Calculator data sheet in advance to speed up data entry into the tool during the workshop. Participants’ data and production information is confidential.
