Nutrient Management Plan Verification and Agricultural Recognition Program

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

Farmers and watershed managers don’t yet have the tools to track and verify actual (versus planned) agronomic, conservation and nutrient management operations as well as the water quality impacts of these activities on specific farming operations. Stroud Center will demonstrate the feasibility and implementation of in-field monitoring equipment for manure applications and field-specific water quality impacts of farming practices. The project will also develop an operating structure and a set of evaluation criteria for an agricultural clean water recognition program.

Funded by: The Campbell Foundation and The Foundation for Pennsylvania Watersheds
