The Minnesota Nutrient Management Initiative (NMI) was developed to assist farmers and crop advisers in evaluating alternative nutrient management practices on their own fields. Participating farmers can work with a crop adviser to set up field trials on their own farms. After completing plot harvest and submitting the required forms, farmers and crop advisers are reimbursed for their time and will receive a summary and analysis of their results.
Results and information from these field trials will:
Individual results will be kept strictly confidential. Statewide results will be summarized for outreach purposes only to highlight and promote existing farm practice advancements and BMP adoption in Minnesota.
The 2016 NMI program is currently full. We may have a few additional spots open, but we are unsure at this time. Please contact Ryan Lemickson (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to put your name on a wait list.
We have currently reached our funding limitations for 2016. However, please contact a NMI representative below to be placed on a waiting list in the event additional funding becomes available and allows more participation.
* Please note that due to budget constraints, farmers are limited to one field trial per season.
** Please sign up as soon as you know you are interested in participating. Registration is on a first come first serve basis and we may close registration before March 15 if the program reaches capacity.
