Implementing a nutrient management plan (NMP) is an excellent way to reduce erosion and runoff while increasing profitability on your farm. Learn how to create your own nutrient management plan, how to update your plan, or understand the plan that has been created for your farm.

Day one will be a classroom session on nutrients and nutrient management planning. On day two and three participants will use SnapPlus software to develop a plan for their farm.

Presenters: Sue Porter, DATCP Nutrient Management Specialist and

Dan Marzu, Langlade County UW-Extension Agriculture Educator

There is no fee to attend these workshops. A light lunch will be provided. First time plan writers may be eligible to receive a stipend for plan development. Ask about available funding for soil testing on your farm.

Why attend:

An approved 590 NMP for cropland and pastureland is required to claim Farmland Preservation Tax Credit.

Implementing a NMP can reduce the cost of nutrient applications and increase profit on your farm.

It is important to understand your NMP if it has been written by a CCA.

Write your own NMP instead of paying a planner to write one for you.

What to bring:

Current soil tests (in excel or .txt format). One test for every five acres is needed.

Maps of soil tests.

Nutrient application information

Herd count

A laptop, if you have one

Location: 837 Clermont Street Antigo, WI 54409 in the Eau Claire River Room

*You must attend the full session to be approved to write your own plan. To maintain approval to write your own plan you must attend a training every four years.
