Description

Nutrient management planning in Iowa can be a complex process. The degree of planning is dependent on the need for one or more different types of management plans to serve the different requirements of state and federal agencies. Producers, their technical advisors, and agency staff are often confused as to what regulations must be met and what practices must be employed to meet the various planning processes of state and federal agencies. The objective of this paper is to review the state and federal requirements, the terminology and the current programs involving the alphabet soup of Manure Management Plans (MMPs), Nutrient Management Plans (NMPs), Comprehensive Nutrient Management Plans (CNMPs), National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits and a few additional acronyms related to nutrient management planning.
