Fluid Journal : Fall 2015
Dr. Tindall is Senior Agronomist for J.R. Simplot Company in Boise, Idaho, and is chair of the FFF Board of Directors and a member of the Fluid Journal Editorial Committee. Dr. Mooso is the Agronomy Manager for Simplot and a member of the FFF R&E Committee. ortho-based P sources like 3-18-18 or other low-salt fluid fertilizers with limited problems. Other micro-nutrient sources can also be applied, but doing a self-test would be advisable. Working together The Fluid Fertilizer Foundation (FFF) continues to support directed research with fluid fertilizer management strategies on drip irrigation. It is currently supporting Dr. Fred Below from the University of Illinois and has supported studies in California, Kansas, and other states. It is imperative that the fluid fertilizer industry directs programs that promote nutrient use and water use efficiency. This works hand-in-hand with the larger priorities of the 4R Nutrient Stewardship program. With drip as a delivery mechanism for water and nutrients both of these critical programs can be addressed. The Fluid Journal, flagship publication of the Fluid Fertilizer Foundation (FFF), makes over two decades of archives available on its web site. The magazine investigates and informs its readers on innovative uses of fluid fertilizers under varied cultural, pest control, and water management practices, focusing on evaluating: • the agronomics of fluid fertilizer in the production of maximum economic crop yields • application techniques for fluid fertilizers • the efficiencies and conveniences of fluid fertilizer systems • methods of controlling environmental problems with fluids. Going on Twenty-Two Years of Archives! Since its formation, the FFF has funded over $3 million in fluid fertilizer research and accumulated thousands of pages of research data. The main goal of the Fluid Journal is to transfer this technical information into easy-to-read form to its farmers and dealers. The Fluid Journal also provides links to its articles on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/fluidjournal For information on how to become a member of the FFF, contact the foundation’s office at 785/776-0273 or the foundation’s website: http://www.fluidfertilizer.com
