Manure can provide nutrients as needed. It also brings Soil Organic Matter (SOM) and beneficial microorganisms.

Major nutrients content of manure is typically expressed by a 3 number rating system. The first number is nitrogen (N), the second number is phosphorous (P), and the third is potassium (K). These numbers represent the percentage of each nutrient found in the product.

Specific weight of manure varies depending on moisture content, with typical value at 400 kg/m3.
