    Years ago a guy used to dump porta-potties on his fields, when folks found out they made him quit, but he grew fantastic crops.

    Where does the waste from porta-potties go now!!

    Don't use poop, but human pizz is pretty sterile and high in nitrogen. Just don't put it on salad greens. For fruit trees/berries it is fine, and deters some varmints.

    I guess you could make potassium nitrate from it, that's a pretty useful chemical.

    Thanks, didn't know there was such a thing.. My personal library has quite a few FM's on the shelf, FM21-10 is among them.

    Guys, we've had dogs crapping on our current property for 20 years now.
    LOTS of dogs, as many as 8 at one time. Currently have 4.
    We don't pick it up, just leave it where it lays. In about a week the elements have disintegrated it into the soil. Gone. We feed dry dog food, not the canned garbage, so that may have something to do with that.

    Now, the horse dung is different. We mound that up and let it sit for 6 months or more, and then mix it in with bags of good garden soil in our raised beds.

    I use horse and cow manure in my garden @ricepaddydaddy. After a good wet spell cover the pile with an old tarp. Will minimize nitrogen loss (as ammonia) and kill any weed seeds too.

    Dog poop? Just don't step in it, especially if you're going into the house or driving the truck. Human poop goes into the latrine.
