Nitrogen Watch 2013. This web page managed by Peter Scharf monitors rainfall amounts across the midwest and highlights areas where nitrogen loss may be an issue this spring.
New Missouri Web-Based Document Generator: This tool allows you to generate the plans you need when writing a nutrient management plan in Missouri using Purdue's Manure Management Planner. Follow the link for more information.
The Missouri Clipper Updated: The Missouri Clipper provides data files needed to run SNMP, MMP and RUSLE2 as part of developing a nutrient management plan for any farm in the US depending on data availability. Files provided in the download include aerial photos, topographic maps, soils data and the new version includes digital elevations (DEM layer).
Missouri CAFO Nutrient Management Technical : This standard defines how manure nutrients are managed on Missouri CAFOs. This standard will affect existing CAFOs when their permit is renewed.

This web page includes links to download the Missouri P index and a tutorial on how to obtain RUSLE2 values needed for the P Index from Purdue's Manure Management Planner. This is complicated so beware!
The Missouri Manure Plant Available Nutrients Calculator Updated: This calculator estimates nutrient availability in manure using MDNR availability coeficients. The calculator was recently updated to simplfy data entry requirements.
SNMP-2.1 Released: Spatial Nutrient Management Planner (SNMP) is a geographical information system (GIS) extension that helps collect and report spatial information used in nutrient management planning. SNMP-2.1 was designed for ESRI ArcGIS 9.2 or 9.3 platforms. There is no charge for SNMP. New release of SNMP: Version 2.1.0028 released 5/20/2010.
Nutrient Management Planning Software and Support: Nationally available software tools and internet access to data needed by nutrient management planners to write a plan.
