Livestock urine usually contains more than 55% of the excreted N, of which more than 70% is in the form of urea (Sommer and Husted, ).Hydrolysis of urea by the enzyme urease produces ammonium (NH 4 .
nutrient source. Nutrient content of manure varies widely between sources and farm management practices. It is widely recognized that poor quality feed for livestock results in manure with low nutrient contents. Manures should be ana-lyzed for nutrient content. The Rodale Book of Composting offers: * Easy-to-follow instructions for making and using compost * Helpful tips for apartment dwellers, suburbanites, farmers and community leaders * Ecologically sound solutions to growing waste disposal problems. Recycle household and yard wastes in /5().
Relative values of crops grown from stall manure and from an equal quantity of manure left exposed in yard and from stall manure reinforced with 23 cents’ worth of acid phosphate per ton. At the Ohio Station, manure exposed three months in an open barnyard lost one-third of its fertilizing value. The list below contains approximate values, which can initially help you choose an optimal method of fertilizing. The values are given per 1ha, for the normal difficulty level, with a certain approximation. You should also consider that the excess manure on the chosen lot is often thrown away, which can be seen from the statistics.

In his book De Re Rustica. manure is so valued is its moderate content in potassium; moreover, this type of manure plays a major role in soil aeration and the improvem ent of soil capacity of water retention [48, 49].Author: Rajeev Pratap Singh.

There is a fine line of difference between manure and fertilizer, which is explained in this article. Manure can be described as an organic material prepared by decomposition of crop residue or animal excreta, that can be added to the soil to improve its fertility.
Unlike, fertilizer is described as any substance (organic or inorganic), that is added to the soil, increase the yield of crops.
Availability of potassium (K) is usually near % with proper application, poultry litter can also provide significant amounts of secondary and micronutrients. Value of manure. The use of poultry litter can contribute to reduce cost of fertilizer inputs for many operations, depending on the price and transportation cost of the litter.
