Reviews for Animal Waste Utilization: Effective Use of Manure as a Soil Resource

At the research level, this book also provides valuable data on the important subject of on-farm nutrient cycling, providing one is prepared to spend a little time reading the chapters on Managing Nutrients in Manure: General Principles and Applications to Dairy Manure in New York, and Use of Manure on Grazing Land. Each of the most important manure types is well covered in separate chapters. Although a series of workshop papers, this book contains enough background material, particularly on farmers' attitudes and on manure processing to make it a valuable text for agricultural students generally, as well as for the more specialist reader. -Phil Harris, Biological Agriculture and Horticulture, 1999
