On-Farm Research and Student Engagement to Assess and Promote Manure and Mulch as Land Treatment Practices in Nebraska

In regions of intensive livestock production, like many areas in Nebraska, significant amounts of livestock manure are produced and, at times, underutilized. Manure positively impacts soil health, has been shown to reduce runoff and erosion, and is no more of a pollutant risk than commercial fertilizers when applied responsibly and at appropriate rates.
