Maryland’s Phosphorus Management Tool (PMT) regulations provide a multi-year process for farmers to transition from the Phosphorus Site Index to the PMT, an updated tool that can identify areas where there is a high risk for phosphorus runoff and guide the use of effective management practices in soils that are already saturated.

When fully implemented, the regulations are expected to help Maryland meet phosphorus reduction targets outlined in its Watershed Implementation Plan to protect and restore the health of the Chesapeake Bay.
