Subject: Re: how much chicken litter to spread?

Turkey Litter has 100# phosphorous per ton. It has sawdust in it. so it tests lower than raw chicken manure. You are often limited by your Phosphorous levels. 1-2 tons per acre is the max they will allow you to spread in most cases.

In Michigan if they caught some one spreading 4 tons per acre they would probably put them in Jail. The Turkey litter has 60# Nitrogen per ton 40# available the first year. I like to see it disked or chisel plowed in, but I have many no-till customers. Try to spread in the Fall or winter when it is still cold out. Hope it doesn't get washed down the hills.
