Designer Manure: Customizing Manure Nutrients to Meet Crop Needs
After storage and handling, animal manures typically do not have crop nutrient ratios of N, P, and K that meet crop needs. This means that at least one nutrient will often be over- or under-applied. But what if we could create 'designer' manures to meet these needs? Organomineral fertilizers will be discussed along with ways to blend commercial fertilizers with manure in the 'do it yourself' fashion. The webinar will end with a perspective from the custom organic fertilizer industry.

Glen Arnold
Associate Professor @The Ohio State University
Glen Arnold is an Associate Professor with The Ohio State University and serves as an Field Specialist in the area of Manure Nutrient Management Application. While in Putnam county as an extension agent, he began research trials on using liquid manure to top-dress wheat and sidedress corn. His research goal is to move livestock producers toward applying manure during the crop growing season instead of the late fall, thus helping to reduce the amount of P and N entering Lake Erie.
