Manure Samples

Wessuc | Manure Samples

Manure is an excellent source of many essential plant nutrients and, with proper management, can meet nearly all crop nutrient requirements. Unlike fertilizer, the form of manure and its composition can vary widely causing either nutrient deficiencies resulting in reduced yield or nutrient surpluses that are susceptible to loss through runoff and leaching. Knowing the nutrient content of the manure being applied allows the operator to maximize the economic benefit of the nutrients in crop production, reducing costs, and reducing the potential for negative environmental impacts from excess nutrient application. We are equipped to provide a variety of manure sampling techniques and recommendations to fit your operation's needs.
