C.N.M.P. , Comprehensive Nutrient Management Plan, is something that livestock producers can chose to have for their operations. The plans help farmers place manure and other nutrients more accurately to their fields. In order to have a C.N.M.P. written farmers are asked to provide the following information:

-updated soil tests for all fields that receive manure (tests must be three years old or less)

-5 year crop rotation for the fields receiving manure, management practices on the field (tillage, etc.)

-FSA maps for all fields, animal numbers

-housing information for all livestock

If you are interested in having a C.N.M.P. written for your operation, or if you would like more information regarding C.N.M.P.’s, please contact the Sandusky SWCD office and ask for Morgan or Meagan.
