State or regionally specific factors such as climate and soils impact the many manure nutrient management recommendations for application rates and best management practices (BMPs). In addition, state specific public policy may also establish minimum expectations and required practices.
Finally, state land grant university research may have identified preferred procedures for implementing crop nutrient recommendations or manure nutrient management that may differ from other states. Regardless of the driving force, it is recommended that nutrient management plans follow state specific recommendations for crop nutrient requirements, crop availability of manure nutrients, BMPs, and planning and record expectations.
If there is no information linked to your state on this map, it is recommended that you contact your land grant university, county Cooperative Extension office, or county or state USDA Natural Resources Conservation office. If your farm falls among those covered by state or federal regulation, your state’s environmental regulatory agency should also be contacted.
