Age-Old Wisdom meets Modern Tools

|Flower||cow, horse||early spring|
|Vegetable||chicken, cow, horse||fall, spring|
|Potato or root crop||chicken, cow, horse||fall, spring|
|Acid-loving plants (blueberries, azaleas, mountain laurel, rhododendrons)||cow, horse||early fall or not at all|
Secondly, which is better chicken manure or cow manure? Dried poultry manure is two to three times as rich as cow manure in inorganic fertilizer content. Poultry droppings are better manure than cow dung (or other farmyard manure) in nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium content, the elements most deficient in Indian soil.
People also ask, is manure a good fertilizer?
Manure is an excellent fertilizer containing nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and other nutrients. It also adds organic matter to the soil which may improve soil structure, aeration, soil moisture-holding capacity, and water infiltration.
What manure has the most nitrogen?
Dry Manure Dried bat "guano," as it is known, has the highest percentage of nitrogen of commonly used aged manures -- bat waste is made up of 10 percent nitrogen. Other high-nitrogen manures sources are those of sheep, pigs and poultry, which each contain between 3.2 and 3.5 percent nitrogen.
