The objectives of this study were to: (a) Develop design criteria for nitrogen and odor control in animal waste stabilization systems; (b) demonstrate the feasibility of nitrogen control using the oxidation ditch; (c) determine the rate, form, and time of manure application permissible without causing surface or groundwater pollution; and (d) determine the optimum rate, form, and time of application for best crop response. Laboratory, pilot plant, and full scale studies were conducted to develop design parameters for odor and nitrogen control. Information concerning the fate of manurial nitrogen and crop response was derived from agronomic field studies. A method of determining oxygen requirements for stabilization based on exerted carbonaceous and nitrogenous oxygen demand was developed.
