Optimizing Agricultural Practices: Balancing Manure Use and Minimizing Compaction


Optimizing Agricultural Practices: Balancing Manure Use and Minimizing Compaction

Watch the recording!

One of the biggest concerns when crop producers are considering manure application is the potential for compaction. This webinar will discuss why compaction is a cropping challenge, consider how the application of manure can lead to it, and the effects of manure on soil resiliency. By providing an understanding of how compaction works, the presenters will share strategies for minimizing impact of the application process and provide insights on how manure might serve as a remedy for compaction.

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

Presenters include:

  • Aaron Daigh, University of Nebraska - Lincoln
  • Ekrem Ozlu, North Carolina State University
  • Leslie Johnson (moderator), University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Handouts (PDF format) will be available the day of the webinar at the live webinar information page. Find out more about this webinar and future webinars by the Livestock and Poultry Environmental Learning Community (LPELC).
