Soil Fertility Guide



Manure may provide many of the nutrients required by crops - in addition to providing organic matter which helps to improve soil tilth, structure, aeration and water holding capacity.

Discussion on the agronomic use and environmental stewardship of manure is beyond the scope of the guide.

For information on manure management refer to the Tri-Provincial Manure Application and Use Guidelines - Manitoba Version 49 or the appropriate Farm Practices Guidelines for Hog/Beef/Dairy/Poultry Producers in Manitoba50.
