A team of university educators and agricultural organizations would like to learn more about the issues most important to you as you make decisions for the use of manure in cropping systems.

What characteristics of manure do you value most in a crop fertility program? What challenges do you encounter that are “deal breakers,” thus preventing manure use on some fields? We would like to understand those barriers and benefits that drive your decisions about manure use.

Please you help us answer these questions by sharing your perspectives in a 15-minute survey.

Others providing leadership for this project include: Dan Andersen, Iowa State University; Erin Cortus and Melissa Wilson, University of Minnesota; and Leslie Johnson and Amy Schmidt, University of Nebraska – Lincoln. Funding for this project is provided by the USDA's North Central Region Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (NC-SARE) Program (Rob Myers, NC-SARE regional coordinator and director of professional development programs).
