Capturing Valuable Nutrients from Manure
Matching the nitrogen and phosphorus content of manure to crops needs can be a challenge. Due to the volatile nature of nitrogen in manure, often times the N:P ratio is not aligned with crop needs. Applying manure to meet the nitrogen needs often results in excess phosphorus application. This webcast is the first in a series of 3 webcasts that will provide information on: the need to capture nutrients for recycling off-farm, global phosphorus supplies, and technologies that are being used on-farm to capture nitrogen and phosphorus from manure. More...An application for continuing education credit for Certified Crop Advisors (CCAs) and members of the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS) has been submitted.
