Posted over 2 years ago

BMPs are guidelines for management activities that are generally accepted by agriculture and the regulatory community as standard and preferred farming methods and activities.

  • PLAN
  • SAMPLE
  • ANALYZE
  • IMPLEMENT

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
