Author: Goss, M. J.; Ogilvie, J. R.; Beauchamp, E. G.; Stonehouse, D. P.; Miller, M. H.; Parris, K.
Abstract: This report has been prepared to determine the current state of the art of manure management in Ontario in relation to concerns in the farm community and amongst the general public. It is intended to overcome current problems in manure management. A draft report was reviewed by Agriculture Canada, and this final version takes account of their comments. This version also includes the results of the assessment of priorities for research made by the University of Guelph Expert Evaluation Panel for Manure Management on 17 September 1993. Following an introductory chapter, a detailed assessment of current knowledge is presented using a framework that follows manure from the point of excretion to the point of utilization in crops. The third chapter presents areas of actual or recently completed research in Canada. The fourth chapter is a review of three manure systems workshops held at Woodstock, Port Perry and Kemptville. The workshops were intended to gather information on the views of the agricultural community on the perceived problems associated with manure management, and to solicit solutions.
