NCSU Scientists Suggest Dispersing Livestock Operations to Prevent Nutrient “Saturation”

Record #:
In an update of a 1991 study, scientists at North Carolina State University report that counties in the Piedmont and Coastal Plan produce more nutrients in animal waste than the crops grown in the counties can take up. The Extension Service will begin discussions with livestock producers about the need to consider dispersing livestock operations to prevent nutrient “saturation” or containment in localized areas.
