Abstract

The papers in this publication were presented at a seminar held at the Ladelund School of Agriculture, near Askov in Denmark, 25-27 June 1985, under the auspices of the Commission of the European Communities as part of the COST 681 project on "Treatment and Use of Sewage Sludge". The seminar was convened by Working Party 4 (Sludge Valorisation) to review and assess recent knowledge on the efficiency of land use of sludge and manure. A total of 24 papers was presented, the first three sessions being devoted to nitrification inhibitors, anaerobic digestion, application to growing crops, comparisons between surface spreading and soil injection, and the value of such practices in improving the efficiency of nitrogen utilisation by grass and arable crops. The last three sessions were concerned with nitrate leaching, ammonia volatilization and how these losses might be reduced. Rapid field methods for determining the fertiliser value of farm slurries were described by two authors and, lastly, a paper was presented on the disease risks of sludge and slurry applications to land.
