Odor and Nutrient Management Newsletter

Fall 1999


by Craig Tordsen, Department of Agronomy

How are you going to record information about manure applications to satisfy record keeping requirements? The answer is the Iowa Crop Management Database (CMD). CMD was developed at Iowa State University as an easy-to-use computer program to record agronomic and economic information of crop production, including livestock manure applications. The program has a built-in list of different types of livestock manure commonly produced in Iowa and their default nutrient values. It is also possible to enter nutrient values from your farm. Combined with the fertilizer recommendation part of the program, manure application rates can be determined and recorded for each field location.

The CMD computer program will run on a Pentium PC or a Power Mac. The cost of the CMD program is $100. It is available by contacting Extension Software Services, 110 EES Building, Haber Road, Ames, Iowa 50011-3070 or by calling 515-294-8658. If you would like additional information about the program, contact me at 515-294-6685.
