Description

Manure, a renewable resource, contains nutrients that are needed for plant growth. Phosphorus in manure can be utilized for crop production as a substitute for synthetic fertilizers. Phosphorus in manure can also be a source of surface or ground water contamination if not used properly. Increased P concentration can lead to eutrophication of surface waters. Management systems need to be developed to utilize manure P effectively without adverse effects on the environment.
