The effects of climate, application rate of dairy manure, timing of application and soil management practice were studied in relation to discharge of nitrogen and phosphorus via surface runoff, sediment and tile effluent. Losses of nutrients from the land were influenced by the rate and timing of manure application in addition to the type of climatological event causing runoff. The greatest discharge of nutrients resulted from applying manure on actively melting snow. Modest rates of application made in the winter during non-snowmelt periods resulted in minimal losses. Concentrations of nitrogen in surface runoff as measured over time, were lower than those found in tile effluent. A computer model dealing with the economic impact of control legislation was developed. Modeling approaches to farm scale environmental problems are feasible if assumptions and simplifications do not influence the results too greatly, or in ways which are unpredictable.
