Manure Management Planner
The Manure Management Planner course provides agrologists with the knowledge they need to prepare plans to apply manure as a fertilizer in an environmentally stable manner.
In Manitoba, the application of livestock manure to land must be as a fertilizer for crop production. Many livestock operations must submit an annual Manure Management Plan (MMP) to Manitoba Conservation and Water Stewardship. Livestock producers can prepare a Manure Management Plan themselves or with the assistance of a qualified Manure Management Planner. Manure Management Planners that prepare plans required by Manitoba Conservation and Water Stewardship must have successfully completed the Manure Management Planner Course and be members in good standing of the Manitoba Institute of Agrologists (MIA) or Certified Crop Advisors.
Assiniboine Community College is offering an approved training course for Manure Management Planners that was developed in partnership with Manitoba Conservation and Water Stewardship, Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Initiatives, and the Manitoba Institute of Agrologists. It consists of a home study manual, a two-day seminar, a manure management planning assignment and a 100 question, closed-book, multiple-choice exam.
Registration and seminar dates will be announced by December 4th, 2017 for the 2018 intake.
Total cost, including manual, seminar, assignment and exam, is approximately $850.
