Runoff, leachate, and wind spread from raw manure piles can result in the contamination of produce, soil, and water sources. To reduce risks, manure piles should be physically contained and covered to protect them from rainfall and wind. The minimum containment for storage is on a concrete slab. Raw manure should never be piled in a produce field or on bare soil.
