Why You Should Pee On Your Vegetable Patch

Human urine is an effective fertilizer because 1 liter contains 3g to 7g of nitrogen and 1g to 1.5g of phosphorus and potassium.

Five hundred liters per year fertilizes 400m2 of soil.

Potatoes fertilized with urine have an increased yield of 70%.

Dilute 1 liter of urine in 10 liters of water, store in closed, opaque containers, or pee directly to the compost.

Use on vegetables that require nitrogen (spinach, cauliflower, lettuce, corn, leeks, chard). Squash, tomatoes and aubergines also thrive on urine.

Note: excess nitrogen promotes disease and attracts pests so use 3 liters of urine per square meter.
