Introduction

Livestock manures are an important resource for sustainable and organic vegetable crop production. This publication discusses the problems and challenges associated with using both raw and composted manures and some of the solutions. Because it is a similar material with related concerns, guano is also dealt with in this document. Restrictions on the use of raw manure in organic farming are also discussed.
