Engineering and agronomic techniques to predict and control the volume of nutrients and chemical oxygen demand leaving the application sites, caused by the application of animal wastes, are described. Methodology was developed to enable the user to identify the pollutant loads for different management practices and to select the best management practice for a given site or region. Engineering, agronomic and economic factors are included in the decision process. The information is presented in the form of regional maps, decision flow charts, tables, graphs, example problems and brief technical highlights.
