For most producers, it is important that every field operation leave the maximum amount of residue cover on the soil surface. However, for those producers who use manure as a nutrient, reducing odors from manure applications is equally important because neighbors often complain more often about odor from manure application than about odor from the facilities. Producers find themselves balancing good crop residue cover and the reduction of odor from manure applications.
