A multi-stakeholder committee initiative, funded through a conservation grant, to develop a list of management practices applicable in North Dakota.

IPNI-2006-USA-ND12

FAR will assemble a Fertilizer BMP Team to refine a list of BMPs for each of six cropping systems of major importance in the U. S. The PPI North American Program Coordinator and regional directors will coordinate the BMP compilation process for each of the cropping systems. Early in the project, PPI will prepare a general Fertilizer Management BMP Matrix and Decision Guide for each cropping system, to guide the development of the final Fertilizer BMP Guides. Read more
