  • Southern soils mitigate manure microbes

    That swine manure sprayed on to fields adds valuable nutrients to the soil is well known. But what is not known is whether all that manure is bringing harmful bacteria with it. A new study looks at the levels of nutrients and bacteria in soils of fields that have been sprayed with manure for fifteen years or more. The research team, composed of scientists from the USDA-ARS Crop Science Research ...

  • Treating animal manure with borax cuts odor

    Hydrogen sulfide is one of the compounds contributing to the stink from manure storage pits on hog farms. Microbial activity in the manure releases the hydrogen sulfide and other compounds. Today, at an American Society of Microbiology meeting in Boston, Mass., Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientist Cheryl Spence reports the results of a study in which 'dusting' hog manure with borax ...

  • Tracking phosphorus runoff from livestock manure

    Nutrient runoff from livestock manure is a common source of agricultural pollution. Looking for an uncommon solution, a team of scientists has developed an application of rare earth elements to control and track runoff phosphorus from soils receiving livestock manure. In addition to reducing the solubility of phosphorus, this method shows particular promise for researchers interested in tracking ...

  • Using Liquid Manure to Fertilize Wheat? Consider Timing, Nitrogen Content

    Liquid livestock manure can be a great option as a spring top-dress fertilizer for wheat fields if applied during the appropriate window of time and if it has the right amount of nitrogen, according to research conducted by the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences at The Ohio State University. In a report published in the latest issue of the college’s  ...

  • 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 ...

  • Manure Science Review Slated Aug. 12: How to Maximize Crop Benefits, Minimize Water Risks

    Manure Science Review this year will have a clear focus on water. The annual learning event will present more than a dozen sessions on getting the most from the nutrients in manure while limiting the chance of them reaching lakes and streams. It’s for farmers and others in the industry. “Manure is an excellent soil amendment and provides nutrients for crop growth,” said  ...

  • Understanding phosphorus in soils is vital to proper management

    Phosphorus is one of the key nutrients that can cause algal blooms and related water quality problems in lakes, rivers, and estuaries worldwide.  Phosphorus entering waters originates from a variety of sources.  Agricultural land receiving long term applications of organic by-products such as animal manure is one of the major contributors.  Such soils often become enriched with P, leading to ...

  • Study of agricultural watersheds and 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 ...

  • Fossil fuels and meat consumption pollute coasts

    Eutrophication: Sources and Drivers of Nutrient Pollution, the second report of a three-part series, finds that developing countries will see more nitrogen and phosphorus pollution in coastal and freshwater areas in the coming decades as a result of population and economic growth. More people and rising incomes will increase the demand for food, energy, land and other natural resources, which ...

  • EPA Helps Farmers Turn Livestock Waste into Wealth

    Washington, D.C. - EPA and its partners have released guidance that can help farmers manage livestock waste and boost farm earnings while reducing greenhouse gases. Processing livestock manure under controlled conditions can produce biogas, a source of greenhouse gas emissions. Farmers also benefit because the biogas can be used to generate electricity. 'Using biogas has multiple benefits; it ...

  • Soil and crop management and carbon sequestration

    Research results from management scenarios ranging from those in the South Eastern, Great Plains, and Upper Midwest regions of the US and from Italy are reported in the March-April, 2010 issue of the Soil Science Society America Journal. This group of papers originated from the Soil Carbon Sequestration and Greenhouse Gas Mitigation Symposium that was held jointly by the Soil Science Society of ...

  • EPA executes warrant in Hughes County, Oklahoma (OK)

    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), accompanied by inspectors from the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food, and Forestry (ODAFF), U.S. Marshals and officials from the Hughes County Sheriff’s Department, executed a warrant at Bishop Farms I and II, in Hughes County, Oklahoma, the EPA announced today. Once the warrant was served on Tuesday, July 6, EPA and ODAFF conducted a joint ...
