About this book

Intensive high-yield agriculture today is typically dependent on addition of fertilizers (synthetic chemicals, animal manure, etc.). Increased knowledge on animal manure management and plant nutrient chemistry is required for improving utilization efficiency and minimizing losses of both inorganic and organic sources. Contributed by over 30 insightful senior researchers and innovative junior investigators, 17 chapters in this book highlight recent research advances in applied nutrient chemistry geared toward sustainable agriculture and environment, and outlook emerging researchable issues on alternative utilization and environmental monitoring of manure and other byproducts that may stimulate new research ideas and direction in the relevant fields. Chapter topics of interest include, but are not limited, to speciation, quantification, and interactions of various plant nutrients and relevant contributories in manure, soil, and plants. Covering issue-oriented comprehensive reviews and problem-solving-driven case studies, this book will serve as a valuable reference source for university faculty, graduate students, extension specialists, animal and soil scientists, agricultural engineers and other technical service providers, and government regulators who work and deal with various aspects of animal manure and plant nutrient management.

About the editors

Dr. Zhongqi He is a research chemist at the USDA and works on Commodity Utilization. He is well known and cited in his area of research. Working with colleagues at the ARS New England Plant, Soil, and Water Laboratory in Orono, Maine, Zhongqi He showed that conventional and organic dairy manures from commercial dairy farms differed in concentrations of plant nutrients, including phosphorus, metals and minerals.
