Application of Sludges and Wastewaters on Agricultural Land: A Planning and Educational Guide, MCD-35. Research Bulletin 1090.
Knezek, Bernard D., Ed.; Miller, Robert H., Ed.
This report addresses the application of agricultural processing wastes, industrial and municipal wastes on agricultural land as both a waste management and resource recovery and reuse practice. The document emphasizes the treatment and beneficial utilization of sludge and wastewater as opposed to waste disposal. These objectives are achieved through incorporation into well-designed and operated agricultural production systems in ways that are compatible with maintaining the soil's normal viability and productivity. Waste characterization, crop selection and management, site selection, management and monitoring are addressed. Sample problems, procedures, calculations and diagrams are incorporated into most sections. In addition, public health and nuisance concerns, as well as public acceptance, legal and economic considerations are discussed. (Author/BB)
