Abstract

The use of bedding in the popular hooped houses for swine production generates large volumes of manure that composts easily. However, composting results in nutrient losses, especially for nitrogen, which then diminish its value as a fertilizer. This study looks at carbon and nitrogen dynamics in the composting process and subsequent soil mineralization.
