Summary

Intensification may increases the environmental impact of livestock production systems. Efforts to recycle nutrients in livestock manure for crop production will effectively reduce several pollution problems. A variety of environmental technologies are being developed for treatment of manure, many of which have a significant potential for reducing plant nutrient losses through cost efficient recycling of the nutrients. The intention of this book is to give an insight in the manure management chain, processes and technologies that may be used to recycle the manure efficiently.
