Welcome to the Nutrient Management Adviser Certification Programme

The Nutrient Management Adviser Certification Programme has been established to certify nutrient management advisers in New Zealand.

The aim of the programme is to build and uphold a transparent set of industry standards for nutrient management advisers to meet, so that they provide nationally consistent advice of the highest standard to farmers.

In 2012, DairyNZ commissioned the Fertiliser Association to establish the programme as part of the Ministry for Primary Industries’ Primary Growth Partnership (PGP).

The programme has an Advisory Group (PDF) with pan sector representation which allows the agricultural industry to speak with one voice regarding the qualifications and ongoing proficiency of those who advise on nutrient use and management in the farming community.
