How To Reduce The Amount of Nutrients and Salts In Dairy Fields
California State Regulations Have Mandated Dairies To Reduce The Amount of Nutrients and Salts In Their Fields
CLARA™, The Manure Separation and Nutrient Management System, Is The Solution
Do you need to reduce the amount of nutrients and salts that you apply to your dairy fields?
The manure produced on your dairy should not thought of as a waste but instead an asset if used properly. It should not limit the number of cows you can run on your operation either.
Following a nutrient management plan for reducing the amount of nutrients and salts in your dairy fields, based on your crop requirements rather than your disposal needs will help you effectively:
- Maximize crop growth
- Increase efficiency and productivity on your dairy farm
- Protect your assets: soil, water, and air.
- Reduce crop input costs.
- Increase your herd size.
CLARA will separate out the excess nitrogen and phosphorus
The CLARA Manure Separation and Nutrient Management System from Figure 8 Environmental, can customize the amount of nutrients applied to your crop at the time it needs it. CLARA will separate out the excess nitrogen and phosphorus that you do not need quickly dewatering it for offsite transport.
Many producers are being affected by the California Water Board Central Valley Salinity Alternatives for Long-Term Sustainability (CV-SALTS) Initiative. This initiative will require producers to minimize field applications of salts and nitrates. CLARA will help you get in compliance now.
Grow the crops you want to grow, keep your soil healthy, put more cows on your dairy.
