Rainfall simulation in greenhouse microcosms to assess bacterial-associated runoff from land-applied poultry litter.

Abstract

Runoff water following a rain event is one possible source of environmental contamination after a manure application. This greenhouse study used a rainfall simulator to determine bacterial-associated runoff from troughs of common bermudagrass [Cynodon dactylon (L.) Pers.] that were treated with P-based, N-based, and N plus lime rates of poultry (Gallus… (More)
