    For centuries animal manure has been regarded as a “soil” builder because of its contribution to improving soil quality. Natural benefits can be achieved through the use of compost when using fertilizers and nutrients and time and placement follow good management practices. Compared to conventional fertilizers, well-fertilized manure in the soil has the potential to provide natural benefits including:

    Increase in soil carbon and low carbon levels

    Decreased soil erosion and water flow

    Decreased nitrate leaching

    Decreased energy demand for natural nitrogen (N) fertilizer
