Pollution turned to nutrients at Penn State's 2010 Manure Expo

Posted: July 2, 2010

By its nature, a national conference on manure tends to generate more dung jokes than ecological perspective. But when Penn State's College of Agricultural Sciences hosts the 2010 Manure Expo on July 15 at the Russell E. Larson Agricultural Research Center at Rock Springs, humor will give way to insights on principles of environmental balance and nutrient utilization.

Because it's a national showcase of the best practices, products and services dealing with nutrient management, professional manure handling, animal agriculture and agricultural water quality, the expo offers a unique opportunity for the nonfarming public, said expo coordinator Robert Meinen.
