Nitrogen Management Plans Information and Assistance

The following is information to help in completing the Nitrogen Management Plans that every grower must complete for all his irrigated acres. Nitrogen Management Plans for 2017 have to be completed and kept on file at the farming operations headquarters by later than June 15, 2017.  For growers in high vulnerability areas, the plans for 2016 must be certified by a Certified Crop Advisor who has taken the Nitrogen Management class from the California Department of Food and Agriculture OR a grower can take a self certification class (see below) offered by the Coalition to certify their nitrogen management plans. 

High and Low Vulnerability Areas 

High and low vulnverability areas were determined by the Ground Water Assessment Report (GAR) that the Coalition completed and turned into the Regional Board in April of 2015. Below is the GAR and its appedix.
