Q&A: Does acidification reduce the smell of slurry?

15.11.2018
NEWS

A reduction in smell could be beneficial to farmers and nearby communities. Some say acidification could help a little. An inevitable part of livestock production is manure and therefore, some issues with smell. Sometimes the smell can limit the efficient use of manure, since the spreading of slurry on fields near habitation, especially under certain...

Effects of incorporation and acidification on ammonia emission from field-applied slurry

31.8.2018
NEWS

  By Sasha D. Hafner, Aarhus University Incorporation and acidification of field-applied slurry are both used to control ammonia emission after application. This document discusses some details about these techniques, based on measurements of emission and the new ALFAM2 model. Incorporation of slurry into soil through tillage can substantially reduce ammonia volatilization after field application...

Baltic Slurry Acidification

Promoting the implementation of slurry acidification techniques throughout the Baltic Sea Region.

Baltic Slurry Acidification aims to promote the implementation of slurry acidification techniques throughout the Baltic Sea Region. Slurry acidification techniques (SATs) will reduce the ammonia losses from livestock manure and thus reduce airborne eutrophication of the Baltic Sea. The usage of SATs will provide clear environmental benefit for the region. The use of SATs benefits also farmers by increasing the nitrogen use efficiency of their manure fertilizers and thereby decreasing their dependency on mineral nitrogen.etusivu2
