Low Emission Slurry Spreading Equipment (LESSE) on the CAFRE Farm
July 8, 2022
Slurry being applied using trailing shoe, low emission slurry spreading equipment (LESSE) after a recent silage harvest at CAFRE’s Greenmount Campus. Using LESSE is beneficial for both agricultural productivity and the environment by reducing nitrogen losses to the air (in the form of ammonia) and also reducing nutrient loss into waterways.
