What Are the Barriers and Benefits of Manure Use in Cropping Systems? (part 2 of 2)
Animal manures can be a valuable asset or a "pain in the assets". During winter of 2020, 957 farmers and their advisors shared their perspective on the benefits and barriers to manure use. A previous article (part 1) focused on perceptions of manure's benefits. This article (part 2) focuses on their perceptions of manure's challenges that commonly become barriers to manure use in some fields and discusses strategies for preventing manure from becoming a "pain in the assets". We invite you to learn more about:
- How farmers/advisors compare manure and fertilizer;
- When manure becomes a barrier for use in crops; and
- Where do we go from here to expand manure's use in crop production
