Nice read. Thanks for the info I'm glad to see operations like this are becoming more mainstream (and legal.)

Good info. I was concerned that storing it would lose the nutrients. It stated storing it for a month would actually kill out any bad stuff.

Thanks for posting this.

The problem Wayne, is that you can't take an offhand sentence in a news article, as verbatim fact. I also read that sentence and was encouraged by it, and pictured sitting bottles of pee in the back of my shed with dates on it. It would be good to have some solid data or sources to back that up.

On a similar note, I've had yellow leafed citrus trees for a year. The other day I was reading through my books and one suggested it was due to nitrogen. So I've been pouring my urine under them for several days, and the colour change is remarkable already.

Mine is in an air tite stainless steel container which probably helps.
