  • Making the most of manure

    By Daniel Carpenter

    LaRue County Extension Agent

    Manure can be a valuable fertilizer, if you know how to correctly use it. Having a nutrient management plan (NMP) can help you to understand how much manure your farm produces, to pinpoint what areas need manure and to identify crops that can best use the manure without losing nutrients via leaching or runoff.
