It is acceptable to apply manure on some fields but not others.
It is acceptable to apply manure on established grasses, fields being seeded within two weeks of application, and berry fields if:
Expected precipitation and manure applications will NOT create nutrient or pathogen runoff to surface water (by overland flow or through tile drains)*
T-Sum value in your area is greater than 200,
Soil temperature is greater than 5oC, and
Crop is actively growing (for established crops only)
*In general, runoff risks are greatest on areas with finer-textured or muck/peat soils, ponded or wet soils that would be compacted by traffic, high water tables (2 feet or less below the surface), or depressions or swales that drain to water courses.
Please continue to check you have enough manure storage to hold the average expected precipitation plus any 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.
