Abstract

Once strictly a farm management concern, manure management is now a matter of state and societal interest. This qualitative study examines why and how farmers in two Iowa watersheds make decisions about manure management for their operations. Farmers interviewed explained the motives, logic, opportunities, and constraints that guide their use of particular management practices.
