Garrett County Nutrient Management Program
The goal is to provide educational opportunities and nutrient management planning services to our farmers in an effort to reduce the amount of nutrients from agricultural operations. A nutrient management plan must be obtained and is required if the farm meet either of the following criteria for their agricultural operation:|
- 8 or more animal units (8,000 pounds of live animal weight) or
- $2,500 gross annual income from the agricultural operation
Jill Hauser, nutrient management advisor, is available to provide the following nutrient management-related services to our county's farmers.
- nutrient management plan
- soil analysis for the Pre-Sidedress Nitrate Test (PSNT) and Fall Soil Nitrate Tests (FSNT)
- instruction and assistance with manure spreader calibrations and yield goal checks
