Making Maximum Use of Nutrients in Liquid Manure

Using livestock manure on a growing crop can more readily maximize the use of the manure nutrients while reducing the need of commercial fertilizer. Better utilization of manure nutrients will reduce offsite movement of these nutrients into surface waters. Ohio State University Extension has conducted small-plot and on-farm research on using swine and dairy manure as a sidedress nitrogen source for corn. In a recently completed three-year project, corn yields from manure as a sidedress have exceeded commercial fertilizer yields in both good and bad growing seasons. This webcast will also discuss the use of a boom toolbar for applying dairy manure to growing corn.

An application for continuing education credit for Certified Crop Advisors (CCAs) and members of the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS) has been submitted.

Presenters include:
  • Glen Arnold, The Ohio State University
  • Bruce Clevenger, The Ohio State University
  • Joe Harrison (Moderator), Washington State University

About the Extension Foundation

The Extension Foundation was formed in 2006 by Extension Directors and Administrators. Today, the Foundation partners with Cooperative Extension through liaison roles and a formal plan of work with the Extension Committee on Organization and Policy (ECOP) to increase system capacity while providing programmatic services, and helping Extension programs scale and investigate new methods and models for implementing programs. The Foundation provides professional development to Cooperative Extension professionals and offers exclusive services to its members. In 2020 and 2021, the Extension Foundation has awarded 85% of its direct funding back to the Cooperative Extension System, 100% of funds are used to support Cooperative Extension initiatives.
