The Farmer Training and Certification workshops provide opportunities for producers with cropland and pastures who use commercial fertilizer and/or manure to learn how to write nutrient management plans for their operation that meet Maryland Department of Agriculture’s regulations. 

            Individuals with fields or pastures high in soil test phosphorus may require additional training and a greater time commitment. 

 

Required Skills:

            Competency in high school math, familiarity with using a keyboard, and the ability to save and retrieve files on a computer are essential for completion of the course and nutrient management plan development.

This workshop spans 5 evenings - February 6, 13, 20 (instructional evenings), 27 (exam) and March 6 (plan writing).  A snow date has also been scheduled in case of inclement weather (March 14)
