Location: National Soil Erosion Research2013 Annual Report
1a. Objectives (from AD-416):
Synthesis of the nutrient recovery from anaerobic digestion of animal manures and evaluation of nutrient runoff potential from land application of digester effluents.
1b. Approach (from AD-416):
Compilation of existing information regarding to nutrient recovery from anaerobic digesters; quantify the nutrient status and improve the digestion process to maximize nutrient recovery; using rainfall simulation to quantify nutrient runoff potential from land application of digester effluents.
3. Progress Report:
The Quality Assurance Protection Plan has been written for this project, and rainfall simulations for anaerobic digester influent/effluent were conducted on plots cropped to corn.
