Technical leaflet: Estimating slurry nutrient content
To optimize the use of slurry it is essential to know its nutrient content. This enables sound decisions to be made on fertilization rates, customized to the individual farm situation. Slurry nutrient content is highly variable, not only across farms but also within a single farm, for example, due to diet or the addition of rainwater, which can vary seasonally. There are financial and environmental benefits to be gained by determining the nutrient content of the slurry more accurately, in a quick and easy way, prior to application. A number of approaches are available for rapid analysis on farm. These measurements are facilitated by the use of calculations, specific to regional conditions and/or to the specific type of equipment used.
