County of Applicant:
Wake
Description:

The purpose of this Golden LEAF grant is to study and demonstrate the practical and economical means by which the valuable nutrients in animal manures, especially poultry and swine manures, can be used as organic fertilizers in forest stands. The use of these manures as fertilizers on forest stands will increase yields of timber-related products such as pine straw, pulpwood, posts, pilings, and dimensional stock, and will provide increased land area for beneficial application of animal manure, thereby decreasing the environmental impact of animal production facilities.
