Posted over 3 years ago

By developing a nutrient management plan that incorporates nutrient management BMPs, you can optimize nutrient usage and protect Indiana’s natural resources and your bottom line.

A nutrient management plan can be used as a maintenance and business planning tool, allowing you to forecast environmental issues that could affect your operation either as a planned or unplanned farm event.

A nutrient management plan evaluates the different and changing nutrient levels as well as potential risks to the environment. The planning process involves describing future plans for your operation, which may include anything from expansion to retirement, and will document steps you have already taken and help prioritize what opportunities should be addressed next.
