Back home, a few years ago some guys tried out the biosolids. They came from up north on hopper type trailers. The driver would dump piles of the stuff on a field and the farmer would come later with his loader, put it in his spreader and put it out. It smelled just like you would think it would. And, of course, you know what color it was. Browne.
WS-1--- There is alot of that around here. Manure trucks run all the time spreading it on fields around here. I don't recall the rate of tons per acre, but given that anhydrous ammonia is so damn expensive, it is a cheaper alternative. The irrigated guys use it, but dryland farmers don't. It doesn't rain here anymore. Charlie
The stuff we got was trucked in from up in New York somewhere. There was a rumor floating around that somebody found condoms in his first load and that another guy found a hypodermic syringe in his. Most everybody is on shallow well, so it didn't take long before we quit using it. Of course, you know what it smelled like and you know what color it was, Browne.
Well, manure is manure, no matter how you stack it up. The funny part about is that cow shxx and horse shxx smell OK to the human nose. Dog shxx and human shxx are different, and are offensive to our noses. Kinda like what comes out of Washington. Charlie
