Abstract

Many farmers are interested in using manure and compost as sources of nutrients and microbial populations that are necessary for nutrient cycling in agroecosystems. Compost and synthetic fertilizer effects on corn yields and soil fertility have been compared in a Practical Farmers of Iowa cooperative trial at the Neely-Kinyon Farm since 1999.
