Quantify the surface and subsurface water quality impacts of using different manure fertilizers.
1) Instrument eight plots for surface and subsurface water quality data collection at Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center (OARDC) in Hoytville, OH. 2) Using randomized replicated design, apply liquid dairy manure, liquid swine manure, and poultry litter at equal phosphorus rates on each of 2 plots while maintaining the remaining two plots as control (i.e., applying commercial fertilizer at same phosphorus rate). 3) Collect surface and subsurface water quality data as well as soil and cropping data to quantify the water, soil, and crop yield impacts of utilizing different manure fertilizers.
