In the Manure and Soil Erosion, Runoff, and Losses roundtable, we hope to discover the influence of manure on soil and runoff. We’ll discuss if certain fields will produce more environmental benefits than others and whether timing of application affects these benefits. Finally, we’ll debate whether we can derive an economic and environmental value for manure beyond its nutrient value, due to improved moisture retention and decreased erosion. 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 third in a four part series discussing the current state of our knowledge relative to manure’s impact on soil health.
