Computerised Nutrient Management Planning
This workshop has been designed to help farmers understand and apply the principles of Nutrient Management Planning to their farm by using DARD’s online nutrient management planning software called ‘Crop Nutrient Calculator’.
Farmers and growers who wish to use the ‘Crop Nutrient Calculator’ to plan applications of fertiliser and manure to met crop requirements and to satisfy the Nitrates regulations should join Grainne McCarney from CAFRE for this informative workshop.
This workshop will help farmers to:-
- Improve soil fertility, make best use of livestock manures and reduce fertiliser costs.
- Become familiar with the computer program.
- Use reports from the program to help with compliance with nitrates regulations.
This workshop follows on from the Nutrient Management Planning work. If you have a soil analysis for your farm, please bring it with you and input the data into the ‘Farm Nutrient Calculator’. Booking is essential to ensure we have enough computers.
These talks are free and supported by Newry, Mourne and Down District Council, Northern Ireland Environment Agency, Ring of Gullion Landscape Partnership and the Heritage Lottery Fund.
