Fall 2012 – Summer 2013
Farm Management Technology : In this second part of the Nutrient Management Plan course students will develop their own Nutrient Management Plan from the information they gathered on their farm during the previous summer. They will be introduced to the use of a software program designed for the Nutrient Management Plan. Students will develop a five-year plan based on the production objectives of the farm taking into account its initial status and the resources that are available. A five-year total nutrient budget for the enterprise will also be presented along with the nutrient management strategies selected to reduce the environmental impact of the agricultural activities of the farm.
