It is acceptable to apply manure on established grasses, fields being seeded within two weeks of application, and berry fields if:
T-Sum values are greater than 200, soil temperature is greater than 5oC, crop is actively growing (for established crops only), and
expected precipitation and manure applications will not create runoff to surface water, to off field locations, and/or leaching below the root zone. Please continue to check your storage areas to ensure you have enough manure storage to hold the average expected precipitation plus account for any potential increased storage circumstances such as excessive precipitation. • Field stored solid agricultural wastes (except agricultural vegetation waste) MUST be COVERED from October 1 to April 1, inclusive. Please read the entire advisory for details and important information to assist in the decision-making process for manure application(s) and storage.
