PaOneStop: Online System for Farm Mapping and Nutrient Management and E&S Planning
Penn State Cooperative Extension has started an online software tool called PaOneStop that allows farmers to map their operations and assist with compliance on nutrient management and nutrient balance sheet regulations. PaOneStop can assist agricultural producers with field mapping, nutrient management and Erosion and Sedimentation Planning. The site displays recent satellite photos to view recent practices that are being implemented on the farm.
The PaOneStop program is free of charge and does not require users to add new software. After registering, users can map their operations and produce hardcopy maps necessary for regulatory compliance. The system has aerial maps, NRCS soil maps and tools to help determine setbacks and boundaries.
