WI Nutrient Management Farmer Education Grants

​​​​​​​​​​​​The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection provides nutrient management farmer education (NMFE) grants to local organizations to teach farmers to develop their own nutrient management plans.

Grants may be one of two tiers:
Tier 1 funding — Provides nutrient management training to producers and plan writers to develop 590-compliant nutrient management plans. Tier 1 funding can be used for participant payments to complete soil testing or to attend training, as well as for administrative, training, and support costs.

Tier 2 funding — Offers nutrient management training and education, but developing a 590-compliant plan isn't required. Tier 2 funding can be used for administrative, training and support costs.​


Local organizations may apply for this funding opportunity.

Eligible projects involve teaching farmers to develop their own nutrient management plans.
