Huge amounts of horse manure is either burnt or illegally deposited. Treated correctly it is a good source for plant nutrition and valuable as a soil improvement or for other horticultural uses. To ensure a safe return to agriculture, aspects such as residues of unwanted compounds should be considered. For instance, there is not much knowledge about the fate of pharmaceutical residues in horse manure. An analysing method was developed and found capable of analysing several active ingredients at the same time. When composting horse manure with residues of medicine, three of the tested active ingredients were still detectable in the compost after 60 days.
