Analysing slurry and manure

Slurries and farm yard manures represent a hugely valuable and often under utilised resource on many dairy farms. Understanding their nutrient values could help reduce reliance on bought in fertiliser and save money.

Slurry and manure are rich sources of nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium that can be used as fertilisers for crops. By analysing the nutrient content of the slurry or manure, farmers can determine the appropriate application rates to optimise crop growth while avoiding over-application and potential environmental impacts.

This Dairy Insight explores the benefits of analysing slurry and manures, as well as sharing the best sampling technique and takes a look at how you can use your results to plan applications of organic manures and build a nutrient management plan
