Organic manures (slurry, FYM or poultry manure) are a valuable on-farm resource. They provide nutrients in the form of N, P and K that could reduce your bagged fertiliser requirements, reducing costs. They also contain organic matter that will improve the condition of your soil and help crop growth and performance.
The material on these pages comes from a variety of sources, including Think Manures, RB209, Nutrient Management guides, and current research on ammonia mitigation methods and alternative methods of spreading manures. This will allow you to take account of what nutrients are in your manures and plan applications accordingly to minimise losses to the environment and maximise economic value.
