All nutrient sources, whether commercial chemical fertilizer or livestock manure, must be managed to ensure that soil, water and air quality are not degraded. Overapplying any nutrient can have negative effects on the environment and decrease ROI. Under-applying nutrients can decrease yield, and in-turn reduce profitability.
Nutrient management plans outline a set of recommended practices and rates supported by science-based information to help ensure the sustainable use of fertilizer and manure.
