The purpose of this two-page fact sheet is to provide a brief overview of the climate impacts of manure injection and to describe recent research in Vermont on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from fields fertilized with manure injection and manure surface application (i.e., manure broadcast). We also present data on the GHG and yield impacts of applying a urease inhibitor with these two different manure application methods.
