Animal manure, with the exception of poultry, generally has a low fertilizer content. Consequently spreading cost is higher than chemical fertilizers. The organic matter content of animal manure is not good enough to raise its fertilizer value; in fact the low degree of humification helps little in raising the soil organic matter content. Composting is a good way of improving the fertilizer value of animal manure. This paper presents the results of a series of experiments performed by the C.R.P.A. and supported by funds from the Emilia-Romagna Region, Agricultural Department.
