Slurry is not a waste product, it is a bi-product. As such it is important that it used effectively and in such a way that the benefits are maximised. Timely and appropriate applications of slurry can make best use of nutrients and protect the water environment for diffuse pollution.
Key to this is understanding the value of your slurry and how ground conditions and soil make-up can impact effective uptake and utilisation.
In this webinar, the second in a four part series Farming a Water Scotland take a look at the relationship between soil and slurry and how to view and critically evaluate the resource stored up in your towers, lagoons and slats.
