Nutrient Management Plan Update Session:

Did you know you need to update your NMP every year to stay in compliance with the State of Vermont RAPs?

If your plan is out of date or you need assistance in updating your plan, UVM Extension and the Windham County Conservation District can help. We are offering a nutrient management plan updating session for producers who have taken the UVM nutrient management planning class. We will provide support and a quiet space for you to update your plans.

Please bring the following and stop in on 2/27:

  • Your nutrient management plan and any records,
  • Manure sample results for every year (or as many as you have) since you last updated or created your NMP
  • Soil sample results from every three years since you last updated or created your NMP,
  • Field records of the activities you performed annually,
  • A computer if you have one (we can lend you one if needed), and
  • Please have your GoCrop license updated before coming and have your password ready.

If you require a disability-related accommodation to participate in this event, please contact Cheryl Herrick at cheryl.herrick@uvm.edu or 802-656-5459 by February 6 so we may assist you.

For more information about these sessions, or other support for your Connecticut River Valley watershed farm, please contact Laura Johnson at laura.o.johnson@uvm.edu or 802-751-8307, ext. 356.

Great River Hydro Donation Drives Conservation Effort in Windham County:

The Windham County Conservation District would like to extend our warmest thanks to Great River Hydro for their donation of $4600 to support the Greeter Programs conducted at the Somerset and Harriman Reservoirs this past summer. Thanks to their continuing support, trained professionals were able to inspect more than 1,000 boats prior to their entering the water. 13 aquatic invasive species were detected and prevented from spreading to these water bodies as a result of this program. Thanks to Great River Hydro for their continuing support of conservation in Windham County!
