Abstracts were prepared of 1162 publications dealing with animal waste utilization and/or disposal, or closely related materials having direct carry-over potential. These latter publications pertained to some other aspect of manure management or to thermochemical processing of some other organic material. In addition, abstracts of 111 pertinent projects sponsored by the USDA were included in a separate appendix. Land spreading, with or without advantage being taken of the fertilizer and soil-conditioning values, is the ultimate destiny of nearly all manure produced at present. Attention was focused in the report, however, on the less-used but potentially more rewarding processes of gas or oil recovery, refeeding to animals after more or less processing, and using as a culture medium for fly larvae, worms, algae, fungi, yeast, etc., with ultimate disposal of the catabolized manure as a soil conditioner, and utilization of the organisms as feedstuffs.
