Some research and field observa- tion has suggested yield increases attributable to manure applications above what might be expected from meeting just nitrogen, phosphorous, and potash needs. A well-planned application system for manure based on accurate- ly supplying crop nutrient needs can also be a sub- stantial economic benefit in crop production. Six years of data from a group of fields in Bondin and Iona Townships near Fulda in southern Murray County points to the poten- tial to substantially increase the levels of some soil nutrients necessary for crop production when manure first becomes part of the fertility program. The study measures soil nutrient levels in a corn and soybean rotation sys- tem where liquid swine manure is applied in the fall before the corn crop. Soil samples are taken to an 8 inch depth before manure application and tillage, and levels for pH, "P205, K20, soluble salts, and 8 trace elements are determined. The data collection was started in 1998 through a partnership between Murray County's Comprehensive Water Plan Committee, landowners, and the U of M. Bob Koehler, a former Murray County Extension educator who currently works with the data as a livestock sys- tems educator at the SW Research and Outreach Center in Lamberton, says results are helpful both for showing the potential of manure applications as a way to increase soil test levels, particularly phos- phate, to maximize yields Lamberton, MN 56152 Daily Soil TcJ (10 Cure.

' } [_Ole on's Mercantile_[ in new manure application sites, and also to assess the potentllal for excessive build-up of nutrients. "Based on our measure- ments manure applied at rates typical for tanker application results in a rapid increase from low test levels to high or very high after even one year's application. However, applications made every other year in the rotation do not seem to reach exces- sive levels that would trig- ger regulatory concerns, at least during the six years that these fields have been measured." "We're seeing manure applications make the biggest difference at first in terms of increased soil test levels, but then those levels tend to plateau in the face of repeated every other year applica- tions," says Koehler. "There's a need to work toward rates that best meet crop needs and possi- bly increase soil test levels on low fertility soils, but avoid over-application which results in increased and unnecessary per acre manure application costs, the waste of nutrients that could be used on other crop acres on the farm, and the risk of nutrient build-up that can introduce environ- mental risk and regulatory problems for the producer." In addition to applying appropriate rates, atten- tion should be paid to guidelines and regulations on applying manure near surface water and the need for manure application records. With information from actual farm fields, there's more opportunity to evaluate, how manure resources can be used effec- tively in ways that meet all regulations. "Six years of data in this project is a good starting point," Koehler said. "There will be more value to the infor- mation as we continue to monitor the sites." 507-859-2600 next to the Walnut Grove Post Office.

U.S. bfficials have discovered that a BSE- infected cow in Washington State came from Canada. Our consumers have said that they want Country- of-Origin Labeling because they trust U.S. food prod- ucts, said MFU President Doug Peterson. COOL can help to maintain consumer confidence in our food sup- ply, and Congress should make sure it becomes law. In addition, Congress should develop a compensation pro: gram for our cattle produc- ers who through no fault of their own, could lose money "" in a BSE-depressed market. Because another BSE case was identified in Canada earlier this year, II Frigidaire Americas Premium Quality Appliances ON SALE AT Klasse Sales & Service Westbrook, Mn. 507-274-6166 Harley L.

Peterson said the U.S. Department of Agriculture should stop its plans to re'- open the border to live cattle shipments, and rescind its plans to allow meat imports from Canada. Federal officials should also look at longer-term actions for food safety, Peterson said. Officials should implement a manda- tory animal identification system, while Congress and the Bush Administration should develop a single inde- pendent food safety agency outside of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Additional stronger steps could include ning of and shipment pected of having Peterson. also pass ing the handling animals.
