LINAP Educational Resources and Fact Sheets

LINAP Fact Sheet

A Fact Sheet has been developed to provide an overview of LINAP, the sources of nitrogen and the impacts on the environment.

Fertilizer Fact Sheets

Fertilizer Fact Sheets have been developed from the information gathered from the workgroup.

A fact sheet on Fertilizer Application Timing and another on Managing Irrigation are available on the web site.

In addition, the fact sheets are available for download and can be printed for personal and professional use.
