NWTC Offers Nutrient-Management Planning Course

Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC) will offer a nutrient-management planning course Nov. 5 and Feb. 4, 11 and 18, 10:30 am – 2:30 pm, at the NWTC Sturgeon Bay Campus to teach participants how to develop a nutrient-management plan that will meet the NRCS 590 Standard requirements.

Participants will enter soil-test data into the SNAPPLUS software program and develop a plan. Topics of study will include conservation plans, field mapping, soil-test analysis, manure management, crop selection and crop nutrient requirements. 

Growers who completed this training in 2018 or before must complete this course to remain qualified to write their own plans. The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection requires farmers to complete a department-approved training course at least once every four years to maintain qualification.
