BIRD MANURE AS FERTILIZER - CORRECT APPLICATION
For many summer residents, chicken manure has become the most accessible type of organic matter, because poultry farms are located around cities, as a rule, in the neighborhood of gardening associations, and they receive additional income from the sale of fertilizers.
But we must not forget that the nutrients are contained in bird droppings in a very high concentration, and if the dose of its application is exceeded, it can harm the plants.
How much bird droppings will be beneficial?
When filling the soil during the digging process, it is enough to add 500 g of dry bird droppings per 1 sq. m. If you put fertilizer directly into the wells, then there should be no more than 10 g under one plant.
Fertilizers work best in liquid form. When using fresh litter, take 1 kg and dilute in 10 liters of water. If the fertilizer is dry, it should be half as much. Such a "talker" is well stirred and immediately brought under the plants. Consumption - 2 liters per 1 sq. m. After that, the fertilized surface should be covered with dry soil (layer - 1 cm) and poured with clean water.
Chicken manure can contain pathogens that threaten human health, the most dangerous of which are salmonella. To prevent them from getting on the grown fruits, the fertilizer should always be well embedded in the soil.
