Manure Additives Comparison in Corn Production
Published Dec 7, 2014
Applying manure or fertilizer with a nitrogen stabilizer has been identified as a practice farmers can use to reduce the potential for nonpoint source pollution of surface waters. Farmer-cooperator Tim Sieren assessed the effect on corn yields of liquid swine manure and anhydrous ammonia applied with commercially available nitrogen stabilizers.
Corn yields were the same with and without a nitrogen stabilizer.
The amount spent on N per bushel of corn produced was significantly greater when a nitrogen stabilizer was used.
