Best Management Practices for Plant Nutrient Management
Sustainably managing plant nutrients is key to a successful farm business and environmental stewardship. Crops grown in Mississippi offer unique challenges due to varying production systems on diverse soils in a warm, humid environment.
Best management practices (BMPs) are research-proven, achievable management options for use on a site-specific basis to minimize undesirable environmental effects. BMPs are selected based on soil types, slopes, climate, crops, nutrient management history, relevant cost-share programs, distance to surface water, and farm management goals and objectives. There is no “one-size-fits-all” option.
