A dump (excuse the expression) of poo stories

Solid manure being field applied with side slinging spreader. (From EPA page on beef production)

While an Australian scientist is urging his company to use “biosolids” (ie, human poo) to fertilize crops (Using poo to combat climate change ), in the US organic farmers are spitting mad over a proposed FDA regulation that would require waiting nine months after spreading manure (animal poo) on a field and harvesting food from that field. (Organic farmers bash FDA restrictions on manure use) That effectively takes a field out of commission for a year. At the moment, farmers wait four months between spreading uncomposted poo and harvesting food.

Why do I not have a poo tag?
