Animal Manure Production and Utilization in the US

Abstract

Over a billion tons of animal manure is produced annually in the US. Animal manure is an excellent plant nutrient source and soil amendment when used properly. Manure contains plant macro- and micronutrients, supplies organic matter, improves soil quality, and maintains or increases soil pH in acid soils. However, nutrients such as phosphorus and nitrogen build up in the soil if application rates are higher than the nutrient requirements of the intended crops. Following a nutrient management plan and proven best management practices will improve manure nutrient use efficiency and reduce the impact of the land application of manure on water quality. This chapter highlights manure and animal waste production, the benefits of using them as nutrient sources, and the potential impacts of manure on environmental quality and management strategies.
