This webinar will focus on the relationships of land applied livestock manure and other organic materials to soil aggregation, resistance to erosion and microbial dynamics in consideration of field characteristics. The implications of cellulose and lignin content of the applied organic material will be addressed. Additionally, we will look at a comprehensive literature review conducted about the effect of manure application on soil properties. The webinar will focus on effects that go beyond manure's capability to provide NPK to crops, such as nutrient cycling and soil physical and biological properties. We will also provide recommendations for future research related to manure and soil.
Presenters for this webinar include Linda Schott and Charles Wortmann of the University of Nebraska. Information at:https://learn.extension.org/
