Manure Fertilizer
Q.

too strong manure tea

Anonymous added on August 21, 2015 | Answered

I have burnt my vegetable plants using a too strong manure tea. Can I save them and what should I do? I made a cow manure tea for my vegetable garden and then gave my tomatoes and everything a watering with it. Now my tomatoes are badly burnt and my squash plants and corn are showing signs of burn. Can I do anything to save my plants? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

About the only thing I know you could do is flood the area with water by hosing it all down real good to flush out as much of the fertilizer (excess nitrogen) as possible.
