Although broiler (chicken, Gallus gallus domesticus) litter has long been used as a fertilizer, estimating the rate required to supply a desired amount of plant-available N is still hampered by the lack of rapid methods to estimate potentially mineralizable nitrogen (PMN). Previous research has suggested that near infrared reflectance spectroscopy (NIRS) and certain poultry litter characteristics, such as water-soluble organic nitrogen (WSON), may be useful for estimating PMN. The objectives of… CONTINUE READING
