Nutrient Management

Nutrient Management Training 

Rock County UW-Extension and Land Conservation Departments are conducting nutrient management (NM) plan writing workshops for individuals interested in developing their own NM plans to be compliant with Farmland Preservation Program requirements. The end product of the sessions is a completed 590 Nutrient Management plan and documentation which can be given to landlords to prove compliance.

For plans to meet program requirements, soil sample information must be current (sampled within the last 4 years), must be from a Wisconsin certified lab and have a maximum sampling density of 5 acres per sample. Soil samples must be taken before enrolling in class. UW-Extension has soil sampling supplies including probes which can be borrowed.
