Re: Horse Manure

All I know is its got alot of potassium. Broccoli loves it and it extends shelf life of vegetables grown with it due to the potassium. It takes longer to break down than cow manure, but if you don't expect it to act like urea, I'd recommend it. Long term it really improves soil structure unlike chicken manure which is hot and nearly entirely digested. I put about half ton on my garden about every 3 years and my topsoil layer is noticeable deeper because of it. The ground is so friable I haven't used a rototiller in 10 years.

Re: Horse Manure

Welcome back James. Thought maybe someone chased you off for good.

Thanks for the info on this topic. Originally I started it only to see if I could help out a neighbor, after a little info gathering I might be able to benefit a troubled area as well.

Re: Horse Manure

I think spreading it evenly and working it in by tillage is the key . I chisel it in and have no problems.
