Use of Turkey Manure as a Nitrogen Source
Date & Time
Tuesday, July 19, 2022, 3:15 PM - 5:15 PM

Turkey manure compost is commonly used in potato production in Minnesota. The aim of this study was to compare traditional nitrogen sources and applications (urea broadcast, ESN broadcast, and ESN banded at hilling) to turkey manure compost broadcast prior to planting on yield and quality of Russet Burbank. Turkey manure compost treatment resulted in a similar marketable yield compared to the urea and ESN treatments. French fry color quality was not affected by N treatment in either year. The turkey manure compost was a good nitrogen source that is readily available and provides a good sustainable option for potato production.
