Farm Plan Writing Workshop
The Jefferson Conservation District hosted a workshop for the farming community on Tuesday, February 7, 2017. State regulations
require farmers to have written plans that address soil and manure management. Megan Whitlatch, Nutrient Management Specialist
at the Conservation District, explained these requirements.
These local farmers learned the difference between a Manure
Management Plan, a Nutrient Management Plan and an Agricultural Erosion & Sedimentation Control Plan. They were then able
to determine which plan would address their farms' needs.
Attendees were shown what information is required
to complete their own plan and how they can produce a map of their farms. Farmers may contact the District if they would
like assistance determining which plan they may need or help completing their plans.
Financial support for this project is provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection through the Clean Water
