11. Following Up

Step 11. Following Up

After delivery of the nutrient management plan, there are many things a nutrient management advisor can do to follow up with the producer including calibrating manure spreaders, conducting a Pre-Sidedress Soil Nitrate Test (PSNT) and/or a Corn Stalk Nitrate Test (CSNT), and estimating corn silage and corn grain yield.

The following information sheets will assist you with the following up step of nutrient management plan development.
