Project

Manure production, manure market and manure surplus

Information about the manure market in 2011 is not available yet. That is way insight into the flow of manure and the manure market for this year is desirable.

Abstract

Over the past few years, the balance in the manure market has resulted in high manure sales prices. In order to determine whether that balance is sustainable, it is necessary to gather data about the flow of manure on the manure market and to monitor the data on an annual basis. For 2011 there was no data available yet so the goal of this project was to calculate and gather data of nitrogen and phosphate regarding: manure production, manure flow on the manure market, distribution of manure and application of minerals in manure and artificial fertilizers. This data was compared with the nutrient applications standards.
