Demonstration plots on manure nutrient value
Friday, 12 June 2009
Fertiliser inputs represent the biggest single cost component of cereal crop production, e.g. representing >60% of the variable costs of winter wheat. Manures can make a major contribution towards crop nutrient requirements and these plots set out to demonstrate how manures can be used as a reliable source of nitrogen (N), phosphate and potash.
