Abstract

Manure nutrients help build and maintain soil fertility. Manure also improves tilth, increases waterholding capacity, lessens wind and water erosion, improves aeration, and promotes beneficial organisms. When wastes include runoff or dilution water, they can supply water as well as nutrients to crops. The economic value of manure fertilizer is calculated from its available nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K) at commercial fertilizer prices. These values change with the costs of fertilizer and handling practices.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 21, 1996
