Description

It's becoming increasingly common for livestock producers to apply manure to alfalfa. This shift comes partly as a response to increased regulatory pressure designed to promote nutrient management planning. In the face of concern about pollution of groundwater and surface water due to runoff from row crops, farmers are searching for alternative crops on which to spread manure. In addition, many livestock producers simply do not have enough corn acres to accommodate all of their manure when spreading at proper agronomic rates.
