Use of Manure to Wheat Production in an Argentinean Hapludoll Soil

Beef cattle feeding operations or feedlots generate large volumes of manure which can negatively impact the environment. This residue has a high concentration of nutrients (N, P and K), minerals, trace elements, organic matter and pathogens, among others. Its components can be mobilized by water dynamics and reach into surface or groundwater water sources, deteriorating its quality. Using manure in wheat production cropland is an alternative method to reduce feedlot environmental impact and thus to achieve an integrated farming system. Manure provides some of the essential elements for growth and development of crops due to its high nutrient concentration, which can significantly reduce fertilizing costs. Moreover, the increase in organic matter (and thus, moisture retention capacity) improves and maintains the soil properties.
