The SnapPlus Training Manual has a complete set of tools to help you get started on your nutrient management plan. Important note:This year is a transition year for the Nutrient Management 590 Standard; planners may be using either the 2005 or the 2015 version. Individual publications that use a specific standard are noted. After the 2018 planning year, the 2015 standard is likely to be the only one in use.
If you are interested in obtaining hard copies of the manual, email Mimi Broeske (email@example.com) at the Nutrient and Pest Management Program for availability.
