Manure Management Planner (MMP) Tutorials

These tutorials were part of a training program for Missouri nutrient management planners.  The tutorials outline many of the steps in developing a nutrient management planner in MMP.  Many of the steps in using MMP are universal among all states.  We have tried to note where the steps are Missouri specific.

These tutorials were developed in 2005 for an earlier version of MMP.  We continue to post these tutorials because they are still mostly applicable to the planning process when using MMP. 

Separate tutorials were developed for a swine operation (liquid manure), poultry operation (solid manure) and fertilizer plan (no manure).

Manure Management Planner (MMP) is a product of Purdue University.
