The Ohio State University Extension has four Nutrient Management Plan Writers working to assist farmers in developing free Nutrient Management Plans in the Western Lake Erie Basin of Ohio.  Plans provide both fertility recommendations and an environmental site risk for fields that help identify resource concerns impacting nutrient and sediment loss.  

NMP writers will be on hand in Seneca County on Thursday January 26, 2017 and Thursday March 9, 2017 from 9:00 am-3:00 pm.  

If you are interested in this free event they will work with any grain, vegetable, or crop producers and/or non-CAFO livestock producers who have the following information available:

Soil test from no later than 2014 in less than 25 acre zones, Complete farm maps and or FSA maps, Fertilizer program, complete with amounts and N-P-K products, Implement details and information, and operation timelines, Crop rotations and yield goals for 2016-2022, Water locations in operations, artifcial drainage practices, and type of surface drainage, Manure: storage capacity, acres to spread on, number of aninals, feed information, and NRCS EQIP program information (if planning to appy, or already applied).
