Annual Plan Sample

NMP Section 12-14. Annual Plan Sample

12. Individual Field Expected Yields and Nutrient Requirements
13. Crop Available Nutrients
14. Action Plan with Field Maps


Several crop nutrient plan tasks must be completed annually based upon the most recently available information for soil tests, manure analysis, irrigation water nitrate concentration, previous years– crop performance, and other information gathered by the producer. Since this information is not typically available at the time of a permit application, estimating crop nutrient requirements as part of a permit is, at best, an educated guess made without essential information.
This section illustrates the implementation of Sections 7, 8 and 9 into an annual plan. The underlying principles and assumptions detailed previously are used to estimate crop nutrient requirements, crop nutrient credits, and manure nitrogen and phosphorus application rates.

Manure Use Plan for Nebraska: .xls Spreadsheet;* Instructions: *pdf version
Estimates the nutrient value of manure and accurately credits those nutrients against the nutrient requirements of a crop. Maintains an 11-year record for 25 fields for manure and fertilizer application rate plans. This spreadsheet can be used for creating and maintaining an annual nutrient plan.

The Manure Management Planner and Plan Generator (MMP) is a program developed and located at Purdue University for making nutrient management plans for crop and animal feeding operations.
