Services - Nutrient Management, CAFO & AFO Permitting
Nutrient Management Planning Statement
TeamAg Inc. will develop, update and maintain Nutrient Management Plan that meet any state specific Regulations. As part of the planning process our staff will visit your farm to collect the all necessary information and perform any onsite assessment that may be needed in order to tailor the plan to your specific farm. We can also provide all soil and manure sampling services needed. Mapping for the plan will be completed using the latest GIS technology. Ongoing support for plan updates and record keeping are also available, and recommended.
GIS/GPS Mapping Services
Detailed and accurate maps can be one of the most useful tools available to the agricultural producer. We can develop maps for your farm remotely using the latest available aerial imagery and basedata, or if you prefer we can also come to your operation and utilize a Global Positioning System to map your exact field boundaries and any other features you request. Maps can be detailed or as simple as you would like.
Once the plan is developed and the landowner is in agreement with the contents of the plan, we will submit the Nutrient Management Plan to the county conservation district for approval. TeamAg Inc. will work with the county conservation district to seek approval for the Nutrient Management Plan.
Soil Conservation Planning
TeamAg, Inc. staff is certified to develop the most RMS (Resource Management System) Level Plans as required by some government agencies. We utilize the same soil loss programs and template as USDA/NRCS staff and can complete a full slate of planning to meet EQIP, Ag-Land Preservation or any other program compliance. At the same time we are more than willing to work with you on plans that must only meet the minimum of requirements. As part of the development of the Conservation Plan, TeamAg Inc., will visit the farm to meet the operator to determine the goals and objectives and other data needed to develop the plan.
Record Keeping & Plan Implementation
By far these are two most important steps after developing a nutrient management plan. TeamAg Inc. can assist you in BMP design, manure spreader calibrations and crop yield verifications as well as provide you with templates for record keeping and even a fully integrated record keeping program.
Comprehensive Nutrient Management Plan (CNMPs)
CNMP planning is now required as a prerequisite for many Federal programs. This type of planning essentially combines your soil conservation planning, nutrient management planning and manure storage and handling practices into one plan that encompasses your entire farming operation. TeamAg Inc., has multiple staff members who are fully certified to develop and approve your CNMP.
Township / Conservation District / Public Meetings
TeamAg Inc. will provide staff to attend meetings and represent the client, if requested.
CAFO (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation) Permitting
Whether you are an existing CAFO or new and expanding, TeamAg can complete all necessary documents, planning, notifications and certifications as well as submit the complete application package to the appropriate agencies to see you through from the presubmission meeting to final issuance of the permit, as well as provide ongoing support through the life of the permit.
