Ohio Nutrient Management Record Keeper (ONMRK) is a computerized recordkeeping system that syncs with your smartphone or tablet to create a simple, easy, and quick way to record all of your fertilizer and manure applications from the field. The free app works on tablets, iPads, and smartphones. It can be downloaded from the Google Play Store for Android devices and App Store for Apple devices.

To get started, simply go to the app’s website www.onmrk.com. After setting up your account, enter your farm and field information. Download and open the app on you smartphone or tablet and enter your applicator key. All of the data that has been entered on your computer will now synchronize with your smartphone or tablet. The app features drop‐down menus and quick entry fields which make it fast and easy to enter the required information.

The application information you enter from the field is combined with the GPS Location data from your smartphone or tablet. Both the current weather data and the weather forecast for this location are recorded. Once the application is saved the data is synced with the website. From the website you can print your application records or export them to a spreadsheet.

The app was developed with input from OSU Extension Knox County, Ohio Farm Bureau, and Knox County Soil and Water Conservation District to meet the new state recordkeeping requirements for both Senate Bill 1 (SB 1) and Senate Bill 150 (SB 150).
