How to Use the Planning Tool
- To start entering data, click on "Start Here" selection in the left navigation menu or at the bottom of the page.
- If you are a new user, you will need to create an account. You will be asked to provide some farm information and create your own username and password.
- Once the initial information is collected, you will be directed to a new page. On the new page are a series of tabs, one for each section of the Ag Water Quality Plan. Answer the yes/no questions in each section that pertain to your farm. If you answer “yes” to a question, select the corresponding Best Management Practices (BMPs) that you have implemented to address this production practice. You may select more than one BMP for some questions. If a question does not apply, answer “no.”
- Complete all six sections, then submit answers to develop your ag water quality plan
