The Nutrient System Editor can also be accessed from this screen.

This screen has five tabs:

Nutrient Sources: Enter all of the fertilizers and organic materials such as manures that will be applied on a farm during a plan year.

Manure Production Estimator: Three optional calculators for estimating the volume of manure collected to spread on crop land for the plan year.  

Animal Units Calculator: Contains a table that calculates animal units for an operation for the plan year according to Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources guidelines.

The Grazing Herd Setup: Simplifies the process of setting up grazing application rates when multiple animal types within an animal group are being grazed.

Manure Analysis: Manage your manure analysis data. Running averages by season are kept for each manure source.
