Pocket guide for manure management planning

by Angela Rieck-Hinz, Department of Agronomy

A revised version of Iowa State University Extension publication ICM 1, Field Records for Integrated Crop Management, Restricted-use Pesticide Applications, and Manure Applications, has just been released. The pocket-sized booklet provides producers with reference material and serves as a place to record field activities, such as planting date, herbicide and pesticide applications, and manure applications. Producers who are required to keep manure application records as part of their manure management plans must record the method of application, dates when the manure was applied or sold, location of the field, number of acres on which the manure was applied, and the manure application rate. These records must be kept for 3 years or the length of the crop rotation, if greater.

In addition to tables provided for keeping manure application records, ICM 1 also contains a table of manure nutrient values that can be used when developing a manure management plan. The booklet contains phone numbers for regional Department of Natural Resources field offices and an emergency number for reporting manure spills.

ICM 1 may be ordered by calling the ISU Extension Distribution Center in Ames at 515-294-5247 or for more information please see http://www.extension.iastate.edu/Pages/pubs/Order.html
