Nitrogen Management Plan --> Next Due 2020 (for 2019 crop year)

Annually, all members are required to complete a Nitrogen Management Plan (NMP) which records nitrogen applied and the crop yield at the end of the growing season. Please keep these plans in your files onsite, and refer to them when completing your Nitrogen Management Plan Summary Report.


Starting in 2020, all members must complete a Nitrogen Management Plan Summary Report and submit it to PNSSNS.

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. There are professionals that can also complete the Sediment and Erosion Control Plans for you and your operation. Applied Engineering and Geology (AEG), whose owner is also a member of PNSSNS, can assist you among other professionals.
