Calibrating Your Manure Spreader for Accurate Nutrient Application

Monday, August 28, 2017

Whether you are a livestock owner cleaning out your manure bins prior to filling them up again this winter, or you are a crop farmer fertilizing with manure, it’s good for to know how many nutrients you are applying before you fill up the manure spreader and go to work. Under application can lead to an unexpected low crop response, and over-application can lead to nutrient run-off this winter and/or phosphorus build-up in the soil.

Learn from Andy Bar, Senior Scientific Associate at WSU- Puyallup how to calibrate your manure spreader in this field demonstration workshop.
