Subsoil Spreader for chicken litter
This new applicator not only claims to double the acreage yield, but the method also reduces the amount of runoff and therefore excess nitrogen pollution.
The gist of it is that it deposits the manure into 2" wide by 3" deep furrows, then covers it back up. I can't help but imagine that would greatly reduce the length of time we get to experience the aroma.
