  • How to Compost Pig Manure into Organic Fertiliser

    In general, a 200lb pig would produce about 13lb manure per day. Pig manure contains plentiful essential nutrition ingredients like nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium for plant growth, which can promote healthy growth and increase the yield of grain crop. Even though pig manure is a commendable raw material of organic fertilizer, lots of pig manures carry E.coli, salmonella, parasitic worms and a ...

  • Occurrence of tylosin in swine wastewater in Mexico

    This study determined a tylosin concentration in swine wastewater located in a Mexican pig farm, during different stages of the pigs' growth. The detection of antibiotics in swine wastewater is complex due to its high concentration of solids. Analytical method was developed for detection of tylosin in swine wastewater and swine slurry. Average recoveries of tylosin in the liquid and solid ...

  • Nutrient transport characteristics of livestock manure in a farmlan

    Background :Livestock excretions containing high concentration of nutrient, pig liquid fertilizer, and cattle manure were applied to agricultural land. The characteristics of nutrient transport were examined in surface runoff and groundwater by an artificial rainfall event at real scale field site. Also, the effects of the artificial rainfall event on the characteristics of residual soil after ...

  • Potential phosphorus, potassium, and magnesium surpluses in an irrigated maize monoculture fertilized with pig slurry

    Pig slurry (PS) is extensively applied to irrigated maize in nitrate-vulnerable zones of the Ebro Valley, Northeast Spain. Farmers base PS rates on the European Union (EU) Nitrates Directive (up to 170 kg N ha–1 derived from organic sources) or on maize-N requirements (about 300 kg N ha–1). The aim of the study was to assess whether these PS rates would lead to P, K, and Mg surpluses in excess of ...

  • Sowing and flowering delays can be an efficient strategy to improve coexistence of genetically modified and conventional Maize

    The coexistence between genetically modified (GM) and non-GM maize (Zea mays L.) fields is subjected to regulation in several countries. A strategy to reduce cross-pollination from GM to non-GM fields was evaluated, on the basis of reducing the flowering coincidence by sowing at separate times. The trial included narrow plots in which transgenic maize was sown before, simultaneously, and after ...
