Manure for vegetables
To obtain sufficient yields in vegetable production, fertilization with nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium is necessary. Manure is a valuable source of these nutrients. This guide is an overview of the latest scientific information concerning potential food safety risks related to the application of manure in vegetable production, and gives recommendations for minimizing these risks. While the focus is on manure handling, other potential contamination sources are also briefly addressed.
