Predicting Nutrient Application at CAFO Land Application Fields Using CAFOweb

Proceedings available at: http://www.extension.org/67714

Current Best Management Practices (BMPs) only measure past land application of nutrients at Animal Feeding Operations (AFO) and Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFO). Because the current BMP calculates nutrient application at the end of the year, the CAFO operator finds out if they have over applied CAFO-generated nutrients, when it is too late to adjust nutrient applications.

Predicting Nutrient Application at CAFO Land Application Fields Using CAFOweb

  1. 1. Predicting Nutrient By: Tara Vander Dussen Application and Reddy Ganta at CAFO Land Waste to Worth Conference Application Fields April 2-5, 2013 using CAFOweb™ Glorieta Geoscience, Inc. PO Box 5727 Santa Fe, NM 87502 505-983-5446 www.glorietageo.com
  2. 2. Why CAFOweb™? Nutrients from manure solids and/or green water can leach into the ground water if not applied at agronomic rates Current Best Management Practices do not allow predictive management of nutrients CAFO operator knows only at the end of the year if nutrients were applied at agronomic rates

  6. 6. Purpose: Which field do Iapply to? ?
  7. 7. One-stop, Real-time Tool Glorieta Geoscience, Inc. designed CAFOweb™ software to implement CNMPs and predict nutrient application rates and timing Beta tested at 8 dairies in New Mexico and Nevada  25,000 cows  2600 acres of land application fields Access your data anywhere from your laptop, tablet or smartphone.

  15. 15. Conclusion CAFOweb™ is a one-stop, record-keeping and nutrient management tool Real-time nutrient application data allows the CAFO operator to make informed decisions Maintaining good ground water quality and soil health retains the value of the CAFO facility for future generations Informed decision lead to optimal use at the CAFO, insuring “wastes” are converted to assets or worth
  16. 16. Future of CAFOweb™ Expansion to other markets Integrated comprehensive water rights module Sustainable nutrient management across all livestock Work with NRCS to make CAFOweb™ their CNMP implementation tool
