So you're the reason that I can't get any?We've been putting it on for a few years, is proper biosolids, composted by mixing with sawdust.
Have spread it with a spreader with decks, but also spread it well with a Joskin drop bed this year with plenty of RPM's on.
We are actually right next door to where they do the composting,has an interesting smell.....
It used to be free, I object to paying for my own sh... back.whats the set up/how do u get it? costs? who spreads? what land can you use it on? any problems with anything bad in it? why does everyone not use it cos im guessing there must be thousands of tonnes.
Sorry, yes I meant that if you dont have access to FYM its great.
Used to be good as free. Now you have to pay. Need to be in a certain distance to treatment works. And you need to take a fair chunk. They do a good lot of paperwork for you. Cant use it pre-malting barley etc.whats the set up/how do u get it? costs? who spreads? what land can you use it on? any problems with anything bad in it? why does everyone not use it cos im guessing there must be thousands of tonnes.
They seem to charge the people who can only take it in the dry weather. Supply and demand?I've used it for years , increasing phosphate levels are more of an issue than heavy metals. Reduces the need for lime also. I would never pay for it, we can only get it through winter so can lead to field damage.
They dont like using it on fields destined for anything but animal feed really. Dont think I would want it on my strawberries etc.Why is there such a problem with reusing composted human waste (small scale/domestically) if you guys are spreading it on crop fields?
I'm about to move to my site and will be using a composting loo, will have to spread the result on the boundary trees/woodland as didn't think i could use it in the polytunnel
