Belcher, David; Aldrich, Brian
Receiving and applying food waste, food processing waste, or other organic wastes on agricultural land can generate revenues (tipping fees) for some of New York State’s dairy and crop farms. This is especially the case if there is an additional on-farm technology such as anaerobic digestion that can further benefit from the addition of these types of organics (e.g. a digester produces more biogas when food waste is added to manure compared to digestion of the manure alone).
