Couldn’t agree more with keep it simple I’d say in our heaps dm is double at the bottom at what it is at the top. Perhaps we’re in a position which we have a lot of muck so can get over the ground but a muckspreader full to the acre is as scientific as I feel is needed.
one thing i've always puzzled about when calculating fym nutrients/application rates is moisture content.....surely it varies thus making tonnes applied worthless...for starters muck spread from inside is going to be lower than field clamps
Ha glad you cleared that up sorry it went straight over my head.Soss, I was trying to make an amusing remark about measurements of quantity. backfired! Such as newspapers saying something is twice the height of Nelsons column, rather than say it is 100 metres, so the average person can gauge the size. You said muckspreader - but not a size. I wondered if it was the size of an elephant, then that leads me to ask African or Indian, male or female. Sorry even I struggle sometimes with my sense of humour, so pity the poor recipient.
Best wishes, H.
Does it fudging matter? We know dung works. The book values are a very rough guess. You can get the stuff tested if you really need to know what it's DM and nutrient values are.
Certainly double check before tucking into that crusty layer bake cake fresh out of the oven left to cool on the kitchen work surface. Could be trapCould always weigh it, then bake it and then weigh again to calculate the moisture content.
Not sure I'd want to use my oven though...
