The Livestock and Poultry Environmental Learning Center will be hosting an educational webcast entitled: Air Emissions from Land Application of Manure.
The presentation will take place Sept. 18 at 2:30 p.m .(EST), 1:30 p.m. (CST) and 11:30 a.m. (PST).
Land applying manure has long known to be beneficial for soil fertility and health. One, less studied aspect, are air emissions resulting from manure application. This Web cast presentation will start with a discussion on the main air quality issues associated with manure application– including ammonia nitrogen loss, odor complaints, and potential greenhouse gas emissions. Presenters will emphasize the importance of equipment in reducing air emissions and show results of field studies comparing the use of various types of currently available manure application equipment. There will also be an update on North American equipment research and development for subsurface application of solid manures.
