Spreading pig manure late in the fall can have a variety of agronomic and environmental benefits To provide extension agents with information on the fertilizing value and environmental impact of spreading pig manure at different times, the project compared the effect of mineral fertilizer to that of pig manure spread in early fall, late fall, and in the spring.
