The most significant complaint about odor from swine manure by the public is during and after surface spreading to the land. Spreading manure on top of the soil either by tankers or irrigation can cause high odors. Some methods to reduce odor or the impact of odor are listed below.
Use low trajectory irrigation guns with large droplet size.
Inject manure into the soil.
Incorporate manure into soil.
Apply manure in the morning on sunny days.
Apply manure on days when the wind is blowing away from neighbors.
Apply manure on weekdays when neighbors have a higher
probability of being away from home.
Always contact close neighbors prior to spreading to avoid spoiling
their outdoor activities.
