WECF publication Urine – the yellow gold
Safe re-use of human urine from ecosan toilets to increase your yields
Urine is an excellent fertiliser containing nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and many micro-nutrients.
Why to fertilise with urine?
The nutrients in urine are easily taken up by plants. The fertilised plant will grow faster, develop more leaves and produce higher yields. Applying urine to crops instead of chemical fertilisers saves money and energy and produces a similar yield. One person produces about 500 liter urine per year.
