Bibliographic information June 1980, Vol.26, No.6, p.402-409. Illus. 45 ref.
Abstract The uses of liquid manure in agriculture and the characteristics of its components (gases, microbes, parasites) are reviewed. Conditions when the manure has been spread are analysed: survival of pathogenic microorganisms, nitrogen concentration. The hazards of hydrogen sulfide, ammonia, nitrates, and pathogenic microbes and parasites are discussed. Technical prevention and personal protective measures required for transfer of liquid manure are set out.
