Description

Animal manures contain substantial amounts of carbon (C) that is bound into organic compounds. This carbon influences the availability of nitrogen (N) in animal manures applied to soils, and these effects make the N in manures behave very differently than the N in commercial fertilizers. The basic effects of organic C on N transformations in soils have been known for decades, and they are discussed in most introductory textbooks relating to soil fertility.

Consider the Carbon in Animal Manure!

Animal manures contain substantial amounts of carbon (C) that is bound into organic compounds. This carbon influences the availability of nitrogen (N) in animal manures applied to soils, and these effects make the N in manures behave very differently than the N in commercial fertilizers. The basic effects of organic C on N transformations in soils have been known for decades, and they are discussed in most introductory textbooks relating to soil fertility.
