This page contains instructions for completing the Proposal to Land Apply Soil from Agricultural Chemical Incidents form. At the discretion of Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) staff, completion of the land application form, or selected portions thereof, may not be required for an emergency cleanup of spills, for small quantities of soil, or for other unusual circumstances.
Based on this information, you must add the following compounds:
The application credit on additive compounds is based on the total pounds of all combined products divided by the application acreage. This amount is credited equally for all compounds that were added. For example, a total of 10 pounds of alachlor + metolachlor applied to 5 acres results in a 2#/acre application credit for alachlor and a 2#/acre application credit for metolachlor.
Note: for application rate pre-screening, you only need to submit the contaminant quantity and application rate calculations table (Item 8) for review.
These instructions correspond to specific items on the proposal form.
The form may be submitted for contingent approval, without all of the signatures, as long as the signatures are obtained prior to spreading, and as long as a copy of the form, with all of the signatures is submitted to the MDA within 10 days after starting the spreading.
