This tough legislation limits fertiliser and manure applications to 170kg/ha N (70kg/acre N). This is particularly difficult to calculate when it comes to muck, due to its inconsistent levels of nitrogen.
Drawing on studies from Europe’s leading research institutes, this free guide outlines the best practices to optimise manure usage on both arable and pastureland.
Key to this is adopting the right spreading technique to limit ammonia losses through volatilisation. The company cites precision application and injection as the most critical means of maximising the nutritional value of manures while ensuring application practices fall within the latest regulations.
The booklet contains tables to give typical breakdowns of nutrient values for different materials plus some practical and financial examples to back-up the theory.
