In order to utilize animal waste in an ecological way, avoiding water pollution and bringing, at the same time, natural fertilizers to crops, spreading plans have to be set up. They have to take into account: crop requirements, soil and slurry characteristics. For this reason a method for the spreading plans definition has been developed and a specific software has been built up. The aim of the work was to give to the technicians working on the field both a suitable method and a calculation tool, helping them on repetitive work and allowing them easily evaluate different possibility of slurry management
