Manure application rates

Asked April 10, 2014, 2:48 PM EDT

I need to calculate the Application rate for manure mixed with bedding. I do not see a chart for this combination. Table 1.2.13 and 1.2.14 of the Ag Guide give all the values needed but not a bedding blend. Do I just calculate the number based on the Percentage of manure verses bedding, or is there a chart that can be utilized? I am preparing a report for the Land Application of Bio solids, Manure Management Plan. Gary Grimm Vanport Township Municipal Authority 724-624-4333
