Abstract

Improving the uniformity of manure distribution may make it a more effective substitute for commercial fertilizer and allow farmers to take proper nutrient credit for the manure. Manure-spreading equipment or application techniques may need to be modified to be more efficient.

Key Question

How can farmers gain confidence in the reliability of nutrient distribution from spreaders?

Findings

This work shows what manufacturers need to know to improve equipment performance and what farmers need to know about using manure spreading equipment effectively.
