Cover Display for EC778

Nebraska's Title 130 Rules and Regulations outline the design, installation, monitoring and management of animal waste storage and distribution facilities. Center pivots can provide an excellent means of distributing liquid animal manure and fresh water application must be secondary. Systems should be designed to apply the liquid manure as uniformly as possible without producing surface runoff or excess odor. Application rates should be based on soil and manure chemical analysis and crop nutrient requirements. Finally, consider environmental conditions and location of neighbors before applying liquid manure using center pivot irrigation systems.
