This course is aimed at advisers, farm and land managers who are involved in recycling of organic materials to agricultural land (e.g. producers of compost and anaerobic digestate and those involved with sludge operations).
Food wastes, effluent treatment sludge and other liquids are recycled to agricultural land which provides agricultural benefit through the addition of treatments. This module will examine the different types of non-livestock organic manures and wastes, their nutrient value and their practical application to land.
