Horse Manure

Horse manure is an organic matter is derived from horses and can be used as an organic fertiliser for domestic garden plants and agriculture. It contributes to the fertility of soils by adding organic matter and nutrients, such as nitrogen which is utilised by bacteria, fungi and other organisms in the soil. Organisms and Funghi Providing an organic nutrient rich environment leads to a higher scope of organisms which feed on fungi and bacteria in a chain of life that comprises the soil food web. This Web of biology within soil interacts in various ways such as predating, feeding, piggy backing, secreting etc interacting and releasing minerals conducive for plant root systems. Soluble Nutrient Vermicompost which is achieved by harvesting the rich dark byproduct of worm castings deposited within compost is an ideal soil enhancer and fertiliser. Adding horse manure as part of your compost pile and introducing it to a worm farm provides an ideal vermicompost. This organic nutrient which is soluble becomes receptive to plants. As plants are known to communicate on a chemical level, their cell wall receptors signal the cell to ‘unlock’ and receive this organic nutrient. Worming Issues Unless you have control over what goes into the horse then there is always a risk of chemicals being passed by the horse into its manure. A good insurance against this potential toxin reaching the compost worm is simply pre compost the manure for a couple of weeks prior to applying it to a worm farm. Risk to humans The following extract can be found in this link – Horse manure is a solid waste excluded from federal EPA solid waste regulation because it neither contains significant amounts of hazardous chemicals, nor exhibits hazardous characteristics.
