A field by field manure nutrient management
program requires multiple components to maintain adequate fertility for crop growth and development
while minimizing soil and water quality impacts. A well designed soil sampling plan including
proper soil test interpretation along with manure sampling, manure nutrient analysis,
equipment calibration, appropriate application rates, timing, and application methods are
necessary components of manure nutrient management plan. Implementing these components allows manure
to be recognized and used as a credible nutrient resource. Potentially reducing input costs and minimizing
environmental impacts. This video will cover three of these components. Manure sampling, manure nutrient analysis,
and field application methods.
