Project

Use of chicken manure in arable farming

The aim is to investigate the possibility to change the quality and composition of organic chicken manure and focus on its use in arable farming.

Approach and timeline

Introducing 100% use of organic manures within organic agriculture results in a growing gap between availability of chicken manure and the use of the manure by, for instance, arable farmers. This results in a growing surplus of minerals form chicken farmers.

Results

Research into the possibility to change the quality and composition of organic chicken manure and focus on its use in arable farming.
