Manure Nutrient Content

The data below are the results of a review of more than 85,000 waste analyses spanning the years from 2005 to 2009. Nutrient data is reported as total nutrients, not plant-available. To determine plant-available nutrients, you will need to multiple the values below by the appropriate plant-availability coefficient. The adoption of this table is effective 1 July 2013.
