  • Broiler litter fertilization and cropping system impacts on soil properties

    Understanding the effects of management practices on soil properties is necessary because soil properties are directly related to the capacity of soil to function. Soil physical, chemical and biological properties were determined after 3 yr in three cropping sequences [continuous cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) (CCC), cotton-corn (Zea mays L.)-cotton (CMC), and corn-cotton-cotton (MCC) each at ...

  • No-till and conventional-till cotton response to broiler litter fertilization in an upland soil: lint yield

    The effectiveness of poultry litter as cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) fertilizer is not well documented for upland soils in the southern and southeastern United States. The objective of this research was to measure cotton yield response to broiler litter fertilization in contrast to inorganic N fertilization and to quantify yield reduction due to lack of incorporation under no-till and ...

  • Reduction of high soil test phosphorus by bermudagrass and ryegrass–bermudagrass following the cessation of broiler litter applications

    Factors that contribute to high soil P in bermudagrass [Cynodon dactylon L. (Pers.)] pastures include continued use of broiler litter rich in P to meet forage N requirements and removal of hay in summer only. This study determined if harvesting annual ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum Lam.) in addition to bermudagrass would reduce surplus soil P, Cu, and Zn faster than bermudagrass alone after litter ...

  • Dutch Farmers Find It Pays To Manage Poultry Manure

    Poultry farmers in Holland face challenges similar to their North American counterparts in dealing with manure from concentrated operations where there is insufficient cropland for application. This creates a need for exporting manure from the producing farm to users in other places. Poultry operations in Holland differ from most North American poultry farms in that most are not vertically ...

  • Poultry Farm Pioneers Low-Rate Composting

    Tony Pastore, Sr. started Park Farms in Canton, Ohio decades ago to process and market chickens. In 1989, it was decided that instead of buying chickens from other producers, a new venture would be launched to raise chickens directly for Park Farms. This led to the formation of A & J Farms, a 1,900-acre operation that contains 14 separately operating chicken farms. Each sub-farm has up to ten ...
