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).

Aims

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. As with all materials applied in an agricultural or horticultural setting, candidates will be expected to have an awareness of environmental issues and quality standards and protocols.

Content

The subject areas covered will include the following:

  • Non-livestock manures and wastes as nutrient sources
  • Application of manures and waste to land
  • Environmental issues associated with manures and wastes
  • Quality standards and protocols
  • Relevant codes and regulations
