Whats your market? Check with your customer. I'd avoid digestate made from food waste, no worries with AD fed maize, silage, slurry etc.
Check your soil analysis. Polysulphate is very useful here. We place a small amount of DAP, use pig muck, cow muck & cover crops for nutrition too. Top dress with liquid N mixed with the pre em herbicide

I have supplied it to a friend to try on one field (non food waste), he had some secondary growth, he was not certain it was from the digestate, but he now applies it the year before the spuds and says that is fine.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
