Abstract

Based on past research, we can estimate how much nitrogen (N) will be lost following land application of liquid manure. Losses can range from nearly zero to 100%, depending on a number of variables. As more is lost, the acreage needed for manure application is reduced, or plants lack adequate N for optimum growth. By being able to estimate how much N will be lost, we can fine-tune manure applications to optimize plant growth, economic returns, and minimize environmental risk.
