Description/Notes: 

Have you updated your nutrient management plan for the upcoming cropping season? Do you have questions? Do you need help getting started? Do you need a software refresher?

The University of Maryland Extension (UME) Nutrient Management Specialists will be available to assist you with updating to your nutrient management plan and the nutrient management planning software NuMan Pro 4.2. The sessions will be informal and participants will work at their own pace. Participants should be certified farmers or consultants.

Participants must be familiar with a keyboard and able to retrieve and save files. Bring a computer-savvy assistant, if needed. 

 WHAT SHOULD YOU BRING?

  • a copy of your most recent nutrient management plan
  • an electronic copy of your NuMan Pro file and other plan components on CD or memory stick
  • soil test results no older than Fall 2015
  • a recent manure analysis (if manure is applied to your land and you have 20 animal units or more)
  • knowledge of what crops are planned for the 2018 cropping season
  • a record of manure applications made in the 2016 and 2017 cropping years
