The agglomeration of intensive and large animal production systems in various regions of the world has resulted in regional surpluses of animal manure. As a consequence, manures are not considered a valuable nutrient and organic matter resource, but a waste product. Inappropriate manure management causes significant pollution of the local environment and may be the source of diseases. In response, governments, especially of rich countries, have produced various regulations for the proper storage, treatment, handling and application of animal manures to crop land. This chapter summarises the pollution risks related to manure management, and the government regulations and incentives introduced to reduce this pollution.
