Microbial Community Analysis to Identify Risk Factors in Manure Foaming
This study was conducted to assess whether shifts in manure microbial populations could explain foam production in deep-pits manure storages. To make the study relevant and practical, swine...

Impact of Liquid Swine Manure Application on Soybean Yield and Surface and Ground Water Quality
In an earlier study conducted at Iowa State University from 2001 to 2006, liquid swine manure was applied to corn plots to give a total nitrogen application of 150 lbs/acre and the targeted nitrogen...

Enhancing the Value of Swine Manure and Nutrient Availability with Application Timing and Cover Crops
The overall objective of this field study was to determine the effect of late summer and fall applications of liquid swine manure with and without an oat cover crop on the nitrate distribution in the...

Swine Manure Applications for Soybean Production – Environmental and Pathological Implications
The application of manure to soybeans has been identified as a potential environmental threat due to the fact that soybeans are legumes and do not require nitrogen supplementation. Thus, the...

Deep Pit Swine Facility Flash Fires and Explosions: Sources, Occurrences, Factors, and Management
Incidences of explosions and flash fires related to manure storage in deep pits were noted as early as 1969. Gases resulting from anaerobic decomposition of animal manure are the likely source of...

Effect of soybean peroxidase activity on phenolic compounds, ammonia, and other organic compounds in swine manure
A simulated manure system was used to evaluate the potential for soybean peroxidase (SoyP) added to swine manure to control phenolic and other odorous compounds in head space air and manure. The SoyP...
