As you know, it is cereal and pulse vegetables sowing season... Before that, farmers have to prepare and improve soil. One of the most important tasks to be carried out for us is spreading manure in our fields (after that we are going to spread inorganic fertilizer before sowing). Due to the poor profits got from cereals and pulse vegetables in our area, we can't spread manure on all our fields every year, so this fertilizer is only used in fields that are really necessary... we are going to fertilize with manure the same field three or four years later... we have to consider crop rotation in this period.
The manure used is generated by sheep; apart from that, they give the best Manchego cheese in the world :). In our zone that cattle is the most common. There aren't dairy farm so we can't use slurry as in other Spanish areas as we told in this post. Normally, the manure is high quality but it is an organic fertilizer really expensive... the final price is about 0.03€/kg. The dose used is about 10,000kg/ha... results which are considerably good for our crops.
As you can see in our pictures and video, this job is machining absolutely and if the manure spreader trailer doesn't generate any problems you don't need handle manure... Unfortunately, there are a few occasion it isn't true :(
