What is vertical manure injection?
Vertical manure injection places manure 6-8 inches below the surface so it does not interact with runoff water during storms. It allows producers to inject manure into ground with high crop residue as well as through pasture ground, bean stubble, corn stalks, rain, snow and two inches of frost (VTI).
Environmental and economic benefits of using vertical manure injection:
By injecting manure directly into the soil verses spreading it on top, nutrients can be maximized while phosphorus runoff from the field is reduced. Using this system allows for faster application, reduced fuel consumption and the flexibility to apply manure in variable conditions and crop residue, increasing the value of the manure.
