The workshop “Managing livestock manure for sustainable agriculture” was held in Wageningen, The Netherlands, on 24-25 November 2010. This workshop was organized by the European Commission DG Environment and the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation of the Netherlands.
The aim of the workshop was to promote exchange of information on manure management among Member States of the European Union, with special focus on manure processing.
The workshop included plenary sessions with invited speakers from several Member States, poster sessions, workshop sessions, and visits to manure processing installations and farms with improved manure management.
160 participants from 25 countries attended the conference, including policy makers, farmer organizations, environmental groups, and scientists. Clearly, this shows the increasing interest in manure processing in the EU.
