Addressing proper nutrient management relates to two areas of concern for the Department. First, the proper application of nutrients to the landscapes helps farmers to maximize their crop yield against the cost of fertilizer. Second, well managed nutrient applications lead to less runoff to surface waters and groundwater contamination, which helps to protect Langlade County's abundant water resources.

Cost-sharing funds may be available to implement nutrient management on your farm.
