A new how-to video from Iowa Learning Farms and the Iowa Manure Management Action Group (IMMAG) offers suggestions, tips and reminders about manure application. The 20-minute DVD, “Manure Management and Conservation,” shows how to collect manure samples for nutrient analysis from different types of manure handling systems, reviews a manure analysis lab report and provides the basics for determining application rates.
It also discusses different types of manure application equipment and how choosing the right equipment can help you minimize soil disturbance and potential soil erosion and nutrient runoff from land application of manure.
