In the Manure and Cover Crops roundtable, we hope to discover whether manure and cover crops have complementary benefits related to soil quality. We’ll discuss if certain fields will produce more complementary benefits than others and whether timing of application and sampling affects these benefits. Finally, we’ll debate whether we can derive an economic value for manure beyond its nutrient value. We’ll also talk about field experiences and observations related to the value of manure as well as what farmers still need related to soil building with manure. This roundtable is the final in a four part series discussing the current state of our knowledge relative to manure’s impact on soil health.
