REVIEW & RECORD KEEPING WEBINAR
Hotze Wijnja, MDAR: Regulation Review
Masoud Hashemi, UMass Extension: The 4R’s of Nutrient Management
Kate Parsons, NRCS: Record Keeping
Does it seem like it’s been a while since you’ve heard about the Nutrient Management Regulations in MA? Do you have questions about what the current rules are and what records you need to keep in case questions of compliance come up? This workshop has you covered. Hotze Wijnja of MDAR will start the workshop with a review of the current state regulations – an excellent refresher for both farmers and ASPs. Hotze has been the face, the voice, and author of the regulations and is the perfect person to bring us all up to speed. Longtime Extension Faculty member at UMass, Masoud Hashemi, will then discuss the 4R’s of good nutrient management: right source, right rate, right time, and right place. Kate Parsons of NRCS will bring it home with the details on what records you should be keeping and strategies for organizing these records in the event you need to provide them to an outside source. Collectively, this workshop will prepare participants to be in compliance with the regulations, clear up questions about record keeping details, and help attendees make money smart and environmentally conscious decisions about nutrient applications.
