Outline

  • Identify available soil resources.

  • Identify manure nutrients available.

  • Identify the nutrient needs of growing crop.

  • Identify sources of nutrients available for that crop.

  • Allocate and balance available nutrients by field.

  • Estimate nutrient carry-over, if any, and the value of that carry-over.

  • Identify spreadable acres available for manure application.

  • Estimate number of acres needed to recycle manure nutrients generated by your operation.

  • Identify steps toward an approved plan.

Heritage Lane Farms

2009


Example farm

Example Farm

Throughout this presentation an example is provided based on a farm that is currently operating a 1,000 head swine grow-finish barn. The farm has 200 cropping acres. This farm has a rotation of corn, soybeans and wheat and fertilizes his fields with manure from the swine operation. This is supplemented with commercial fertilizer when necessary. The field used throughout this book as an example is Brown 1 or B1. It is 30 acres and will be planted in corn. The previous crop was soybeans. Examples based on this scenario can be found in different sections throughout the presentation in gray boxes like this one.

Manure nutrients

Manure Nutrients

Example

This swine example uses book values, due to a lack of manure test results, from Table 1 Grow- Finish deep pit of 33 lb/1,000 gal of NH3-N, 17 lb/1,000 gal of Organic N (ON), 42 lb/1,000 gal of P2O5 and 30 lb/1,000 gal of K2O which will be applied in September and incorporated within 1 day.

PAN: (17 x .33) + (33 x .25) = 13.86 lb/1,000 gal

P2O5: 42 lb/1,000 gal

K2O: 30 lb/1,000 gal

PAN is Plant Available Nitrogen. This is the amount of Nitrogen available to the crop based on time of application and method of application.

Nutrient management workbook 2009

Example - Liquid Fertilizer (used in this example)

5 gal/ac of 10-34-0 are applied at planting. The fertilizer contains 10% PAN, 34% P2O5, and 0% K2O. The application rate is 5 gal/ac x 11.7 lb/gal =

58.5 lb/ac.

PAN: 58.5 lb/ac x 10% = 6

P2O5: 58.5 lb/ac x 34% = 20

K2O: 58.5 lb/ac x 0% = 0

Example - Dry Fertilizer

Diammonium phosphate has a blend of (18-46-0) applied at 150 lb/ac. The fertilizer contains 18% PAN, 46% P2O5 and 0% K2O.

PAN:150 lb/ac x 18% = 27 lb/ac

P2O5:150 lb/ac x 46% = 69 lb/ac or 14 lbs/ac

K2O: 150 lb/ac x 0% = 0 lb/ac

Nutrient management workbook 2009

Example

The swine farmer decides to base his application rate on the nitrogen need of the corn crop. Field B1 needs 154 lb/ac of PAN (from E: Additional Nutrients Needed) and the manure has a value of 13.86 lb/1000 gal or 0.01386 lb/gal .

PAN Application Rate = 154 lb/ac / 0.01386 lb/gal = 11,111 gal/ac

If he chose to use P2O5: 40 lb/ac / 0.042 lb/gal = 952 gal/ac

If he chose to use K2O: 65 lb/ac / 0.030 lb/gal = 2,167 gal/ac

Nutrient management workbook 2009

Manure Nutrients Applied

Example

Manure Nutrient Values for field B1 are 13.86 lb/1000 gal of PAN, 42 lb/1000 gal P2O5, and 30 lb/1000 of K2O. Dividing these by 1000 to achieve lb/gal or a PAN of 0.01386 lb/gal, P2O5 of 0.042 lb/gal, and K2O of 0.030 lb/gal. The application rate calculated previously is 11,111 gal/ac but 7,000 gal/ac was applied to monitor the rate of P2O5.

PAN: 0.01386 lb/gal x 7,000 gal/ac = 97 lb/ac

P2O5: 0.042 lb/gal x 7,000 gal/ac = 294 lb/ac

K2O: 0.030 lb/gal x 7,000 gal/ac = 210 lb/ac

Additional nutrients

Additional Nutrients

  • PSNT: Pre Side-dress Nitrogen Test

  • Applicable for fields with history of manure application

  • Designed to capture ON cycling

  • Sample just prior to side-dress N application

  • Indicator of NO3-N + NH4-N available

  • 30 ppm sufficient PAN, low probability of yield response with additional N

  • 0 – 30 ppm, higher probability of yield response with additional N

Example:

Page 14


Nutrient carry over

Nutrient Carry-over

  • Apply based on N needs of crop when applicable and P for rotation.

  • 4.2 year carry-over means the need for more P is not likely for 3-4 years, but dependant upon crop rotation and soil test level.

Example

I: Crop Nutrient Balance shows a negative number for P2O5 and K2O which means there is an over application of those nutrients. There is an excess of 212 lb/ac of P2O5 and 79 lb/ac of K2O. The current market prices for fertilizer are:

N= $0.89/lbP2O5= $1.35/lbK2O= $1.10/lb

P2O5: 254 lb/ac x $1.35/lb x 28.9 ac = $9,909.81

K2O: 145 lb/ac x $1.10/lb x 28.9 ac = $4,609.55

Example

A farmer has 1,000 head in his grow-finish barn excreting 1.2 gallons of manure/hog/day.

1,000 hogs x 1.2 gal/day x 365 days = 438,000 gal/yr

This example assumes 365 day/year one-time clean out. You will need to fine-tune this to accurately reflect your situation.

Manure value change

Manure Value Change

  • What is the per acre change in manure nutrient value when the application period changes from Sept-Oct to April-June?

  • Only PAN changed.

    • 13.86 lb/1,000 gal (Sept-Oct)

    • 30.36 lb/1,000 gal (April-June)

  • 30.36 – 13.86 = 16.5 lb/1,000 gal

  • Price of N = $0.65/unit of N

    • 16.5 units * $0.65 = $10.73/1,000 gal

    • $53.65 - $75.11 / acre (5 - 7k gal/ac)


Summary

Summary

  • Balanced nutrient inputs to match crop nutrient needs + soil resources(?)

    • Soil test is necessary for full utilization of nutrient inputs.

  • Application of nutrients beyond crop needs and soil carrying capacity increases risk of nutrient moving off-site.

    • Economic loss ($$$)

    • When, where, how and how much are important questions to ask.


Summary1

Summary

  • Nutrient sampling/testing is necessary to “fine-tune” a nutrient management program.

    • Testing provides you a tool to make an “educated guess.”

  • Nutrient management workbook used as a tool to:

    • Verify current nutrient management practices.

    • Identify more efficiently uses of on-farm nutrients.

    • others
