10. Record Keeping

Step 10. Record Keeping

Record keeping is good practice for agricultural operations. For nutrient management, crop yield records, by field, support yield goals used to develop nutrient recommendations. In addition, records of equipment calibration and organic applications confirm proper application rates and that nitrogen credits are assigned to the appropriate fields.

The following worksheets and information sheets will assist you with the record keeping step of nutrient management plan development.

The Agricultural Nutrient Management Program also has a "Field Management Records" pocket-sized notebook that can help make crop, pesticide, and nutrient management record keeping easier. Please call the Program's office at (301) 405-1318 for information on how to receive your free copy.
