28 May 2452m 33s

Manure can be magical for improving your soil and attaining bigger crops. But, like any fertility source, it can be over-applied creating imbalanced soil fertility. Getting the most from a manure source involves agronomic analysis, testing, and even variable rate application. Paul Beyer of NextGen Fertilizers began working with Colorado dairy and crop farmer, Stratton Kraft three years ago to correct agronomic issues. By revamping his manure management, Mr. Kraft has attained amazing yields while making his manure source go further AND reducing his irrigated water rate. Organic matter increases, bigger yields, and a smaller fertilizer bill — maybe manure can work for your farming operation!
