Fact sheet seriesA new series of fact sheets for Iowa crop and livestock producers titled the “Iowa Manure Manager Series” is currently being developed, with the first fact sheet available in early July.  This series of fact sheets is being developed by the members of the Iowa Manure Management Action Group (IMMAG) in response to the continued need to provide information on regulations, best management practices, neighbor relations and sources of additional information for people producing or applying manure as crop nutrients.

Topics for each of the 11 facts sheets were identified by the members of IMMAG and are listed below.  The fact sheets will be available through the IMMAG Web page and will be distributed by the members of IMMAG through their respective newsletters, magazines, producer mailings and the popular press.  Anyone wanting hard copies of the fact sheets will be able to print the material from the Web at : http://extension.agron.iastate.edu/immag/pubsimms.html.
