The Soil and Plant Testing Laboratory analyzes soil, plant, water, manure, compost and greenhouse media. The laboratory provides quality testing and unbiased, research-based recommendations to clients for economically viable and environmentally safe nutrient management practices. Composting Manual Manure. 4. 5 Chapter 1. Introduction required to apply manure compost may stay the same but the producer can economically haul compost further than manure. • Increases water retention of soil Disadvantages • Loss of ammonia (N) • Time and labour involved.
