Application of manure to cropland is an efficient use of the manure resource because costs are usually less than for treatment in special facilities and the manure nutrients, nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium benefit crop growth. Manure nutrients build and maintain soil fertility. Manure improves soil tilth, increases water holding capacity, reduces water and wind erosion, improves aeration, and promotes beneficial organisms. There are two paramount objectives when applying manure to cropland… CONTINUE READING
