We co-teach a week-long Extension course focused on training Nutrient Management Planners. In North Carolina, Nutrient Management Plans are required for farms with animal waste management systems regulated by the NC Division of Water Resources, as well as farms located in nutrient-sensitive watersheds. These plans must meet federal technical standards and be certified by a technical specialist approved by the NC Soil and Water Conservation Commission. Completion of this nutrient management course is one required component of the application to become a certified technical specialist. The course is offered twice a year and you can find more information here.
