Minnesota Agricultural Water Quality Certification Program (MAWQCP) Assessment Tool

The Minnesota Department of Agriculture’s “Minnesota Agricultural Water Quality Certification Program” (MAWQCP) launched an assessment tool online application to provide program participants a common online format in which to streamline the certification process. <br/>The intended application audience includes the producer, licensed certifier, crop advisor, or other agronomic and conservation professionals. The assessment tool, one of three steps necessary to obtain certification, is a risk assessment tool which aggregates factors relating to nutrient management, tillage, soil properties, pest management and conservation practices into a unitless index score on a 1 thru 10 scores. Each field and cropping scenario is assessed. <br/>The online application increases the efficiency of information gathering necessary to run the assessment tool. Features include mapping queries, data organization into field libraries, summary report generation and data packaging into small, easily transmittable formats. The application uses GIS map and geoprocessing services to calculate some of the summary data.<br/>The online application ensures producer privacy by requiring users to store the information on a local drive; the hosting website and server does not store any information. <br/>
