Nutrient planning allows for management of the amount, form, placement, and timing of the fertilizer application. It is useful for both manure and commercial fertilizer applications.
Do More with Less
The purpose of nutrient management planning is to supply plants with optimal nutrient amount for maximum yields while also reducing the amount of wasted fertilizer. This will lessen nonpoint pollution (runoff of pollutants to surface water) and minimize contamination of groundwater. At the same time, a nutrient plan aims to maintain and improve the condition of soil.
