BMPs are guidelines for management activities that are generally accepted by agriculture and the regulatory community as standard and preferred farming methods and activities.
The following are some nutrient management BMPs for your farm:
- Have a plan - Contact a CCA or consultant to help you develop a nutrient management plan
- Take regular, systematic soil samples from your entire farm and send them to a soil testing lab
- Use your farm’s soil analysis as the guide for all nutrient application and management decisions
- Make application and management decisions that are agronomically reasonable and environmentally practical
