Incorporate Manure Early in Vegetable Gardens

The national eXtension Web site says animal manures can be used as fertilizer on vegetable gardens

The national eXtension Web site says animal manures can be used as fertilizer on vegetable gardens. The site recommends incorporating manure into the soil during the fall prior to planting the vegetable crops the following spring. Applying manures during the growing season is not recommended due to the chance of contaminating produce with disease-causing microorganisms.
