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
