Poultry Litter Nutrient Management: A Guide for Producers and Applicators

When properly managed, poultry litter provides an excellent source of plant nutrients and organic matter for application to pastureland and cropland. Continual applications also may raise the pH of acidic soils in some cases. Many variables affect the overall value and cost of litter to the end-buyer and should be carefully considered before purchasing. Due to air and water quality concerns, regulations and proper nutrient management must be followed to reduce environmental impact. This guide discusses different aspects of poultry litter such as its use, benefits, regulations, environmental concerns, and provides information for readers to use the best management practices for their operations.
