Keywords:   Dairy manure, nitrification, intermittent aeration, nitrogen, phosphorus

The objectives of this study are to (1) develop a cost effective treatment strategy to conserve nitrogen (N) in liquid dairy manure by determining the minimum aeration to non-aeration ratios required to conserve N in the manure, and (2) evaluate the suitability of using chemicals to reduce phosphorus (P) concentrations in liquid dairy manure treated as in objective (1) to achieve suitable N:P ratios for crop production.
