Manure is Variable

There is significant variation in manure composition, such that book values for nutrients in manure are not reliable for nutrient management planning. There is a factsheet available for estimating nitrogen credits from manure [FS-4], and a factsheet for manure sampling, analysis, and interpretation [FS-38]. Factsheets also are available for manure use during alfalfa-grass establishment [FS-42], and application of manure to established alfalfa [FS-16].
