W.Va. Nutrient Management Certification Program

Nutrient management ensures that the correct amount of nutrients are applied to the land.

Annual Activity Report for West Virginia Certified Nutrient Management Planners

Above Report must be submitted no later than January 31, 2014.

A strong livestock and poultry industry is essential to West Virginia's economic stability, viability of rural communities and production of a healthy, high-quality food supply. West Virginia farmers rely upon various state and federal agencies as well as the private sector to provide education and technical assistance to both produce food and protect our natural resources and public health.

To help farmers efficiently manage manure, biosolids and chemical fertilizers to minimize water contamination and maximize financial returns, the West Virginia Department of Agriculture has developed a nutrient management certification program.
