Summary

Manure management is essential for sustainable use of plant nutrients, as disease-causing microorganisms (pathogens) can be spread with the manure. By treating the manure with heat (e.g. composting) it is possible to determine the reduction based on temperature and time relations. With chemical treatment (e.g. ammonia treatment) the reduction in pathogens over time can be determined by knowing the concentration of uncharged ammonia.
