    • ...DeLuca and DeLuca (1997) summarized results reported in the literature and indicated that for most composted manures, the nitrogen (N) recovery is 20% in the first two years, followed by 10% in the third year and 5% in the subsequent years until 13th year...

    • ...Composting has been proposed as a possible manure management tool for reducing the cost of transporting PL to nutrient deficient lands (Sims and Wolf, 1994) since composting significantly reduces the volume of waste materials (DeLuca and DeLuca, 1997) and stabilizes nutrients (Tiquia and Tam, 2002), thereby reducing their release rates (Dao, 1999; Dao and Cavigelli, 2003)...

    • ...Composting also improves the market value of feedlot manure as a soil amendment and fertilizer (DeLuca and DeLuca, 1997) and eliminates pathogens (Larney et al., 2003b) and weed seeds (Larney and Blackshaw, 2003) typically found in manure...
    • ...Composting results in higher P concentrations because P is conserved while CO2 and NH3 losses result in 30 to 50% reduction in mass of C and N (DeLuca and DeLuca, 1997)...
    • ...higher ash content of the composts was expected and was due to the decomposition of OM and concomitant emission of CO2 and gaseous forms of N during composting (DeLuca and DeLuca, 1997)...
