Nitrogen Management Plan --> Next Due no later than Dec. 15, 2021 for 2021 crop

2021 Nitrogen reporting:    All members must report the amount of nitrogen applied to crops or pasture for the 2021 season  NO LATER than December 15, 2021
Remember, this is NOT the total pounds or quantity of fertilizer, only the nitrogen portion of the fertilizer applied.

Example:    If you use 16 -20-0 fertilizer, and you apply 100 lbs/acre, the first number is the Nitrogen amount 16%, so 16% x 100 pounds is 16 pounds of nitrogen applied per acre.

 

 Four important questions need to be answered on the annual INMP reporting: 

  1. What type of irrigation system do you use (flood, sprinkler, drip, micro-sprinkler, etc)
  2. How much nitrogen applied per acre (lbs/acre) and how many acres farmed for that crop/parcel. If zero nitrogen added, enter a zero.
  3. What was your crop yield, even if you didn't apply nitrogen this year, please complete the total yield PER ACRE, in lbs, tons or other
  4. If one or more of your parcels are designated High Vulnerability (HVA) for potential leaching of nitrogen, then either you must self-certify your parcels to certify the reporting, OR  have your certified CCA, PCA, UCCE Crop Advisor, etc. certify on your behalf.
 
You can return your completed form to PNSSNS by mail or email to pnssnssubwatershed@gmail.com  OR 
go to the online reporting website at www.sacvalleydmt.com with your NEW log-in username and passcode sent to you with your annual membership invoice in September. 
Call or email PNSSNS with any questions or assistance. The Irrigation and Nitrogen Report (INMP) is required to be completed annually as part of the requirements for the Regional Waterboard's Irrigated Lands Regulatory Program (ILRP). Your cooperation annually is appreciated!

PNSSNS is highly encouraging all members to complete a Sediment and Erosion Control Plan (SECP).  Members can "self-certify" their sediment plans by completing the online course during certain times found at Irrigating Lands Regulatory Program (IRLP) Grower Self-Certification Training.

 

Once the short online course is completed, there is a short test and a certificate will be awarded when you pass the test. Please print out the certificate for your records to demonstrate your "self-certification" for your Sediment and Erosion Control Plan.

The Regional Water Board is actively looking for those not in compliance and sending fine letters to those people that have not joined or are not in compliance with the Waste Discharge Order. PNSSNS provides education and outreach for best management practices with irrigation, pesticide and nutrient applications in order to minimize soil erosion and to continue to protect water quality.
