Findlay Inn & Conference Center, 200 E. Main Cross Street, Findlay, Ohio 45840

Press release (PDF)

Crop advisors in the Western Lake Erie Basin have an exciting opportunity to improve nutrient management and farmer productivity this season. This February 25-26, the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and Ohio State University Extension, in collaboration with IPM Institute of North America, will host a free training event for Certified Crop Advisors to become Technical Service Providers (TSPs) qualified to write Nutrient Management Plans.

With TSP certification in Nutrient Management Planning, growers and their advisors can take advantage of funding available through NRCS Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP). EQIP provides financial assistance to growers to hire qualified professionals to create and implement approved plans addressing the 4Rs: Right fertilizer source, at the Right rate, at the Right time and in the Right place.

Registrants will receive TSP certification training from an NRCS representative on February 25 from 9:30AM-4:00PM, with the option to participate in additional training for nutrient management plan writing on February 26, hosted by Greg LaBarge, extension educator with Ohio State University Extension.
