What is the Picus Platform?
A new app to determine the value of manure.
With sky-high commercial fertilizer prices, animal manure has become a hot item. More and more crop farmers are looking for ways to reduce input costs, and manure presents an opportunity to do just that.
Recognizing the importance of manure in today’s farming landscape, the team at Avé Organics has designed an online calculator for determining the value of manure. The calculator allows you to select animal species, enter nutrient content, download local fertilizer prices, determine an application rate and calculate hauling and application costs. After using the calculator, you will have a good idea of what you might want to pay for manure.
Depending on your knowledge and experience, the calculator can be used for averages or can be dialed in for more precise estimates. If you’re uncertain of the nuances of calculating manure value, we suggest using the default values built into the calculator. Try it out below!
