Title
Establishing relative release kinetics of faecal indicator organisms from different faecal matrices
Description
Aims: A laboratory assay for comparative characterization of various faecal matrices with respect to faecal indicator organism (FIO) release using, artificial rain water. Methods and Results: Fresh sheep and beef-cattle faeces, dairy cattle slurry and beef cattle farm yard manure (FYM) were collected from commercial units in south-west England and applied to 20 randomized 1 m2 plots established on permanent grassland.
