What are the difference between organic manure and inorganic manure?
Organic Manure: It is semi decomposed organic matter. It is prepared from natural materials like plant and animal residues. It is not nutrient specific. It is required in large quantity. It is bulky and is difficult to transport to long distances. It is environment friendly. It contains humus and helps in maintaining soil texture and aeration. Inorganic Manure/Fertilizers: It is chemical formulation. It is synthetic being formed from chemical salts. It is nutrient specific. It is required in small quantity It is concentrated and is easily transported to long distances It does not contains humus and harm the soil texture Excessive use harms the environment .
Can you use rabbit manure in a garden?
Yes, rabbit manure can be used in gardens. Rabbit manure (NPK 2.4-1.4-0.6) is one of the richest organic nitrogen sources available. It is so rich that it should be mixed into the soil as a side-dressing, away from the roots and stems of vegetables. It will break down more quickly in contact with soil microbes, and it will not attract the maggots that it would if left on the surface.

Is organic manure expensive?
No, organic manure is not expensive if cultivators have their own resources to draw upon. The term organic manure references the use of the waste products of backyard and farm animals as non-chemical, non-genetically-modified, non-synthetic fertilizer. Store-bought organic manure may be a bit more expensive than commercial fertilizers even though the price can come down with periodic coupons and sales at organic farming and gardening centers.

Is it better to use compost manure or manure?
It generally is better to use compost manure when confronted with the choice between it and compost-less or uncomposted manure. Compost manure represents a mix of dark-colored, fresh-smelling, nutrient-rich organic matter with non-human animal waste products. It will be less potentially disruptive and intrusive in regard to soils and soil food webs than unadulterated manure, whose presence may emphasize foliage over flowering and fruiting at best and overwhelm the medium with insoluble, undiluted nitrogen at worst.

40 pounds of cow manure equal to how many cubic feet for adding to garden soil?
It depends. The amount of compost or manure that you should add to your soil will vary on the quality of the soil. If you have clayey soil, for instance, you should use much more compost or manure than if your soil quality is already good. In my experience, 40 gallons of manure will be enough to put a thin layer over 100 square feet of good quality soil. For Clayey soil, about twice as much will be necessary to reduce the clay. Make sure that the manure is well composted (it should be at LEAST 6 month old, a year is better).

What is steer manure?
Steers are male cattle castrated before sexual maturity and raised for beef. While they are being raised, they generate plenty of digestive waste - manure (although the manure is usally also mixed with the bedding material spread in the stalls where the steers are kept and which the manure lands on). Fortunately this manure is very useful for fertilizing soil and thus is collected and sold to those who want to use it to enrich their soil with the nutrients and plant materials contained in the manure - thus helping to offset the cost of raising the steers. Some other common terms for manure are: cow dung, cow pies, cow chips, organic fertilzer, and muck

Asked in Agriculture, Farm Crops
Does rotating crops use up nutrients?
It depends on the crops in the rotation and the farmer's yield goals. For example, an organic producer who is most interested in crop quality instead of yield will not use up all the nutrients in the soil. If the soil is a little low, he can add some organic manure or compost. But a Midwest US corn and soybean grower with high yield goals will always have to keep adding some nutrients.
Asked in Agriculture
Compare the use of manure and fertilizers in maintaining soil fertility?
Manures contains many organic substances of biological origin which can be easily degraded and absorbed by plants.Its helps in recycling of biological waste they increase soil fertility of the soil for long duration without causing any harm.The chemical fertilizers on other hand,improve soil fertility for short duration but cause environmental hazards.Continose use of fertilizers in particular area causes destruction of the soil fertility.
Asked in Botany or Plant Biology
Why should organic manure be added only at the time of sapling?
No an entirely true statement. Organic manure can be applied at any time to plants. Certain organics though, such as bone meal are not water soluble so have to be added at the time of planting. Use of "raw" or "hot" manure (that which is not properly decomposed) can actually damage and burn young plants if not diluted.
