Nutrient Management

A strong livestock and poultry industry is essential to West Virginia's economic stability, viability of rural communities, and production of a healthy, high-quality food supply. West Virginia farmers rely upon various state and federal agencies as well as the private sector to provide education and technical assistance to both produce food and protect our natural resources and public health.

To help farmers efficiently manage manure, biosolids, and chemical fertilizers to minimize water contamination and maximize financial returns, the West Virginia Department of Agriculture has developed a nutrient management certification program.
