additional research on barriers to adopting manure management
We selected manure management
as a focus because this particular practice occurs on a narrow spatial and temporal scale, and necessitates a certain level of interaction with the surrounding community and use of road networks that connect their fields.
A shift towards solid manure management
practices (such as solid scrape) may result in reduced GHG emissions by reducing the anaerobic digestion that occurs when water is used to flush manure into storage lagoons.
The ICEP values are lower than under scenarios with (ISSM-MR and IP-MR) than without (ISSM and IP) advanced animal manure management
In the literature, improvement of nutritional strategy and manure management
practices has been widely investigated in order to achieve a pig production with low carbon emission.
HR 848, the Farm Regulatory Certainty Act, would reaffirm and clarify Congress' intention regarding manure management
under the Resources Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976, also known as the Solid Waste Disposal Act.
Although such a nutrient loss may vary dependent on the traditional manure management
, regional climate condition in each region, and livestock categories, quantifying and building up database of soil budget for nutrient may support the systematic management of nutrient and the environmental protection.
Other mitigation options are manure management
, through export of manure to farms with P-deficient soils, manure storage to prevent land application in inappropriate period.
Earlier this year, a federal judge in eastern Washington ruled that an industrial dairy farm's manure management
practices posed an ''imminent and substantial endangerment'' to the environment and to thousands relying on well water.
The comprehensive Nutrient Separation System was developed by McLanahan to improve the social and environmental sustainability of the dairy industry while reducing the cost and liability associated with manure management
The 21 studies represented a wide variety of field sizes, crop and manure management
conditions, manure types, and geographic locations across the United States.
The quantity of chemical fertilizers, fuel and other "production inputs" used, the differences in soil conditions and production systems and the extent to which best practices such as cover cropping, intensive grazing or manure management
are implemented all affect the amount of greenhouse gas emissions a meat product is responsible for generating.
