Maryland Nutrient Management Voucher Training

Maryland nutrient applicators are required under the 1998 Water Quality Act to follow guidelines on fertilizer and manure applications. Farmers applying nutrients (synthetic or organic) to 10 or more acres of land are required to have a current Nutrient Management Voucher. Vouchers are obtained by attending an approved 2-hour training course once every three years. Farmers who are certified to prepare their own nutrient management plans are exempt from this requirement.

The University of Maryland Extension offers several voucher training sessions throughout the year.
