The objective of this study was to evaluate the impact of a change from N-based application of liquid dairy manure and composted dairy solids without incorporation to a P-based (crop-removal) management system with immediate (<1 h) incorporation of manure on (i) corn silage yield and quality and (ii) soil test NO3 and soil test P over five consecutive years in which corn was grown and harvested for silage.
