Hey y'all! This looks like a really cool project with big implications. Here in NC, this issue shows up in the context of large hog farms where nutrient cycling is hyperlocalized in ways that adversely affect the quality of life for neighboring communities. So far it seems the lack of information on the full spectrum of possibilities has limited the consideration of alternatives, so it will be interesting to see what your hacks reveal here!

Great work and awesome concept, guys!  I love the concept of recycling our Nitrogen, Phosphorus and potassium resources.  You should bring your research up here to Western Canada.  There's a lot of animal farming (Alberta beef, for instance) and phosphate mining for fertilizers.  Not sure how much farmers here are currently doing a forever recycling of animal manure as plant nutrient sources.  We also have a lot of grazing land up here, so it might be worth expanding your research to Canada and taking a look at the situation up here.

Thanks @EseOmats1425 , as a former resident of Ottawa, CA, I support expanding the analysis to Canada. 😀

Thank you for the feedback @JohnBalla and @EseOmats1425! As a wife of a Canadian, I too support this expansion :).
