Better Quality Farmyard Manure Through Improved Decomposition
PDF File Size: 19 KB | Download   
Farmyard manure ? a varying mixture of animal manure, urine, bedding material, fodder residues, and other components ? is the most common form of organic manure applied in the midhills of Nepal. Farmyard manure has a high proportion of organic material which nurtures soil organisms and is essential in maintaining an active soil life. The high organic matter content and the active soil life improve or maintain friable soil structures, increase the cation exchange capacity, water holding capacity, and infiltration rate, and reducing the risk of soil pests building up. A prerequisite for the manure having a positive impact on soil fertility is that it is properly decomposed. Decomposition is enhanced and the time it takes to happen is reduced if the manure is kept warm and moist (but not wet) at all times. Heaping the manure up or storing it in a pit helps.
