Manure is both a valuable resource and a mitigation problem for animal production units. Manure application strategies can be established either for obtaining maximum nutrient efficiency or to maximize application rates while minimizing environmental impact. Either way, having an understanding of manure nutrient content is necessary for developing and executing an appropriate management plan. Because of large differences in manure storage and handling systems, “book” values are of little value and testing for nutrient content is necessary.
Our web based data management system allows for access to results and tracking of source content over time. This system will allow you to “file” and summarize necessary report information for fulfilling Act 38 requirements for the Pa Nutrient Management Program.
