Nutrient Management - Certificate Sessions

Nutrient Management Certification Sessions for Agriculture & Horticulture

 

If you apply nutrients to 10 or more acres of land or have 8 or more animal units (an animal unit is equal to 1000 lbs of live weight) you need to be certified through the Nutrient Management Program.

The following is a brief summary of your certification needs:

  • Sessions should be taken in order. For example, you should attend Session I before attending Session II.
  • Poultry growers that do not land-apply nutrients (manure or fertilizer) will need to attend Session I and Session II.
  • Grain, forage or vegetable producers that apply nutrients to crops will need to attend Session I, Session II and Session III.
  • Livestock owners (cattle, horses and sheep) who do not land apply manure need to attend Session I and Session II
