Liquid Manure Application Systems Design Manual provides the agricultural community with current research and industry experience in applying liquid manures to farmland. Emphasizing basic principles, this abundantly illustrated manual outlines a design process for planning and implementing an economically efficient, environmentally safe liquid manure application system that is tailored to the producer's needs. The comprehensive guide discusses basic design components - such as a variety of pumps, pipes, hoses, and irrigation nozzles - of commonly used liquid manure application systems. Field application methods covered include tankers, hard-hose reel systems, drag hose/soft hose ground application, and center pivot irrigation. The design manual also discusses such management issues as environmental assessment, nutrient management, liquid manure storage and handling, application rate strategies, environmental assessment, odor control, and safety. Included are 69 illustrations and 20 tables, plus work sheets, suggested readings, and a list of manufacturers. Livestock producers, environmental regulators, waste management sales professionals, irrigators, system designers, public officials, and educators are among those who will benefit from this book. Liquid manure may be defined as any liquid that is contaminated from the animal production system, and the on-farm management of liquid manure presents an important opportunity to curtail agricultural nonpoint source pollution. Liquid Manure Application Systems Design Manual provides the agricultural community with current research and industry experience in applying liquid manures to farmland. Authors of the Liquid Manure Application Systems Design Manual are Mark Dougherty, staff engineer, NRAES; Larry D. Geohring, senior extension associate, agricultural and biological engineering, Cornell University; and Peter Wright, animal waste specialist, agricultural and biological engineering, Cornell.
