A two-day course on how to write a nutrient management plan using computer software will be held three times in April and May.
The course will take participants step-by-step through the process of developing a nutrient management plan with particular focus on operations that use manure. The course will include hands-on computer instruction on using the AFOsite, Missouri Clipper, Spatial Nutrient Management Planner (SNMP), Purdue's Manure Management Planner (MMP), RUSLE2 in MMP, and the new Missouri document generators to develop your plan reports.
Three two-day courses are scheduled:
Courses will meet from 9:30-3:30 each day. Cost includes the use of a computer during the training and two lunches. We plan on applying for CEU's for CCA's for this course. Pre-registration is required. Cost is $215 per person.
