Nutrient Management

Comprehensive Nutrient Management Planning (CNMP)

The objective of a CNMP is to provide owners/operators of animal feeding operations (AFO) with a comprehensive plan to manage manure and organic by-products by combining conservation practices and management activities into a conservation system that, when implemented, will balance the nutrients available on the farm with the needs of crops for optimal production and protection of natural resources.
