manure application

What are the methods used in the application of animal manures?


  • Animal manure can be applied using different methods, including:

    1. Broadcasting: This involves spreading manure evenly over the entire field.

    2. Banding: This involves placing the manure in bands along the crop rows, usually about 2-3 inches to the side and below the seed.

    3. Topdressing: This involves spreading the manure over the soil surface around the base of the plants.

    4. Incorporation: This involves mixing the manure into the soil before planting.

    5. Injection: This involves injecting the manure below the soil surface, usually using a special tool.

    The method used depends on factors such as the type of crop, soil conditions, and equipment available.
