Making a difference

Success stories and impact reports

Farmers in Wisconsin need to develop farm nutrient management plans because they are required by government agricultural programs, zoning rules, livestock siting ordinances, and permitting process for animal feeding operations. In addition, improving nutrient management practices benefits farmers by increasing profitability and reducing the detrimental effects of nitrogen and phosphorus on water quality.
