Title: Summary of results from Green Plan projects on manure/nutrient management and closed loop recycling
Author: Morris, David T.
Abstract: Many questions about effects on the environment from livestock manures and the nutrients they contain continue to be of prime concern within rural Ontario. Several projects undertaken within The Canada-Ontario Agriculture Green Plan addressed issues related to manure and manure nutrient management and much useful information and experience were obtained. This report was prepared to facilitate the transfer of the results of these studies to extension personnel and the farmers that they serve, to the decision makers within the various levels of government, and to some degree, to the general public. This report provides a summary of the major observations and conclusions of eight Green Plan research reports, with particular reference to water quality and greenhouse gas issues, along with supplementary information from one project funded through the Land Management Assistance Program and four projects of the Rural Conservation Clubs Program.
