  • Rainfall and manure application timing affect organic carbon losses

    Dissolved organic carbon (DOC) losses from tile drains are an underquantified portion of the terrestrial carbon cycle. This is particularly important in the eastern corn belt where tile drainage dominates the agricultural landscape. Specific land management practices, such as manure application, can play a large role in the export of DOC as soluble organic carbon is applied to or injected into ...

  • Toyota and Menicon Jointly Develop Improved Livestock Manure Composting Product

  • American society of agronomy

    Recycling manure is an important practice, especially for large livestock producers. Manure can be used as fertilizer to aid in crop production, aiding livestock producers that grow their own feed crops. While manure does provide a rich nutrient source for crops, it also can contribute to nutrient leaching and runoff. This can contaminate the surrounding ecosystem and lead to eutrophication of ...

  • Oil spray reduces greenhouse gas emissions from pig finishing barns

    Animal feeding operations are an important emission source of air pollutants including methane and carbon dioxide—known greenhouse gases. Recent inventories suggest that animal manure makes a significant contribution to global methane emissions. As a consequence, greenhouse gas emissions can potentially become a limiting factor in the development and sustainability of animal production and ...

  • Biogas for Broiler Farm

    PlanET receives its first order for an agricultural biogas plant in the UK. Clients are two farmers in Herefordshire, who are going to build a 190 kWel biogas plant. Construction is planned to start in spring 2010. The proposed plant will consist of one digester and one digestate tank and is designed to utilise approximately 3,300 tonnes of maize silage, 1,000 m3 of cattle slurry and 600 tonnes ...

  • Target the crop not the soil - to reduce fertiliser use

    Feed the crop not the soil’ is the message of a new review into sustainable phosphorus use. Currently, phosphorus fertiliser is applied to the soil, and plants then take it up through the roots. However, more precise nutrient management is needed on farms, the researchers say, so that the phosphorus is targeted at the crop just as it needs it. Modern agriculture is dependent on phosphorus, ...

  • Wanted: partners with organic waste flows for PPP project

    Organic waste flows, varying from compost to feather meal, can be recycled and used in the arable and greenhouse horticulture sectors to improve soil quality. But which criteria must this material meet? What are the requirements in terms of the composition of organic material? And how can you improve the quality of residual waste? Wageningen UR is looking for companies with organic waste flows ...

  • Sustainable phosphorus use — evaluating past patterns to inform future management

    Recycling waste from farming and mining could help improve the sustainable use of phosphorus, a recent study suggests. The study traced the stocks and flows of phosphorus over a 50 year period to reveal changing patterns of global phosphorus use. The results can be used to develop the sustainable management of phosphorus — a finite and critical resource — in the future. ...

  • Supporting climate-friendly food production

    This summer, record temperatures and limited rainfall parched vast areas of U.S. cropland, and with Earth’s surface air temperature projected to rise 0.69 degrees Celsius by 2030, global food production will be even more unpredictable, according to new research conducted by the Worldwatch Institute (www.worldwatch.org). Although agriculture is a major driver of ...

    Farmers’ and growers’ confidence in digestate and compost has been given a welcome boost, as new ground-breaking research published today,  shows smart use of these renewable fertilisers can increase yields and reduce bills with no negative impact on crop quality or safety. The programme of field experiments,  ...

  • Banana compost could boost crop yields, a study finds

    Using old banana trees to make compost may help boost crop yields while cutting down water and fertiliser use, according to an Egyptian researcher. Banana-based fertiliser could cut about 20 per cent of the water used in irrigating maize and lead to better yields and improved soil properties — such as availability of ...

  • Integrating animal and crop production can reduce nutrient leaching from agricultural fields

    Nutrient leaching, the movement of plant nutrients from soil to water, can have negative effects on aquatic ecosystems due to eutrophication, which reduces the oxygen available in water, causing species and habitat loss. Ecological Recycling Agriculture (ERA), which is based on ecological principles and integrates crop production and animal husbandry, may limit this effect. This study ...
