Why can I enter soil nitrate test data on the Soil Tests panel?
Many states use a nitrate soil test in generating nitrogen recommendations. Nitrate soil test data is only valid for the year in which it was collected. This data isn’t relevant for multiple-year planning purposes. MMP can still generate N recommendations without the nitrate soil tests. • How do I override MMP’s default fertilizer recommendations? MMP’s fert recs are based on your state’s extension recommendations. If you have custom fert recs that you prefer to use instead, simply scroll the grid to the right on the Crops panel and enter your recs in the appropriate Custom columns. MMP will use your custom fert recs instead of its default fert recs. Be sure you document the source of your custom recs by entering that information in the Source column. To view the source of MMP’s default fert recs, click on a default fert rec cell. MMP displays the source in the status line. This source is usually an extension publication that you can go to for more information. • How do I enter a field
