The nutrient management planning process requires continual nutrient analysis of generated poultry litter to determine accurate agronomic land application rates. To better understand the challenges that nutrient management planners have faced with these nutrient concentration changes in poultry litter, an analysis was conducted of sample results submitted to the West Virginia Department of Agriculture Nutrient Management Lab, from 1994 to 2010. The number of produced Broilers in WV for 2010 was 87,600,000; the number of turkeys grown in WV during 2010 was 3,100,000 and the number of Layers averaged 1,200,000. NASS did not report pullet numbers. Data was analyzed by bird type including, Broilers, Layers, Pullets and Turkeys.
