Practice Notes
a)    Monitoring will focus on rotations with a minimum of three different crops and/or at least 2 years in perennial/multi-year species.
b)    Monitoring will focus on the timing and placement of manure and/or commercial fertilizers, and/or high-level management such as Precision and/or Adaptive Nutrient Management.
c)     Monitoring will only be completed for “field-applied management of manure” scenarios that require management changes to form, timing, placement, and/or rate.
d)    Monitoring will also evaluate the full system of supporting practices necessary for proper practice function; payment caps for these practices, in combination, will not exceed the cap of the primary practice.
e)    Practice payment will be limited to the listed amount annually, up to the maximum number of payments per policy.
