New manure, compost directory in Alberta
November 12, 2008 by Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development
November 12, 2008 – To help connect producers wanting to buy, sell or trade manure, Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development has created the Manure and Compost Directory.
The Manure and Compost Directory is an online site designed to facilitate transactions between producers wanting to move manure or compost off-farm and those looking to apply manure to their land as a source of nutrients for crop growth. Producers can easily post a wanted or for sale listing on the site by going online at http://www.agriculture.alberta.ca or by calling the Ag-Info Centre (310-3276 in Alberta, 403-742-7901 out of province). The listing will indicate on a map of Alberta where the manure or compost is located and provide details regarding the amount and type of manure available, plus the desired price or arrangements of sale.
Also new to Ropin’ The Web is the Manure & Compost Handling Custom Services Directory for custom applicators to post their services and contact information (search for “custom manure services” on the website).
