Video: Sidedressing swine manure with a tanker

In this short video, Extension manure management specialist Melissa Wilson gives an update on her manure sidedressing research project.

Wilson is testing whether sidedressing liquid swine manure into standing corn is a viable practice in Minnesota. This could open up the window of opportunity for applying manure. In previous years, she studied a liquid dragline hose system. This previous video covers Wilson’s research on that system. The above video dives into her new project using a tanker, which began in 2020.
