How to Use the Planning Tool

  1. To start entering data, click on "Start Here" selection in the left navigation menu or at the bottom of the page.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.”
  4. Complete all six sections, then submit answers to develop your ag water quality plan
