Manure Fertilizer
Q.

Too Much Manure, Is Soil Bad Now?

Zone Gallup, NM | tw6441 added on February 17, 2020 | Answered

Last year in spring time, we put some sheep manure onto garden soil. The manure was about 8 months and was not composted. My question is that being a year later, how is the soil? And what are some things I can do to improve it? We have always had a good growing season til I made that mistake.

It should be nice and broken down by now! Make sure and test the soil for deficiencies and pH issues before adding anything. This will help you to be sure that the correct nutrients will be put back into the soil.
