What Is Manure Management Planner?
Manure Management Planner (MMP) is a Windows-based computer program
developed at Purdue University that's used to create manure management plans
for crop and animal feeding operations. The user enters information about
the operation's fields, crops, storage, animals, and application
equipment. MMP helps the user allocate manure (where, when and how much)
on a monthly basis for the length of the plan (1-10 years). This
allocation process helps determine if the current operation has sufficient
crop acreage, seasonal land availability, manure storage capacity, and
application equipment to manage the manure produced in an environmentally
responsible manner. MMP is also useful for identifying changes that may
be needed for a non-sustainable operation to become sustainable, and
determine what changes may be needed to keep an operation sustainable
if the operation expands.
MMP currently supports most states by automatically generating fertilizer
recommendations and estimating manure N availability based on each state's
Extension and/or NRCS guidelines.
