    I have cattle and use a weed killer to kill unwanted weeds in my hay field. Using a weed killer does not affect beef that is sold slaughtered and eaten. It won’t affect plants either.

    What is the half life of Round-Up, 6months??? Compost usually sits longer than that

    I’m not sure but I do know it’s safe for pets not long after it’s applied.

    Not a glyphosate fan and try to avoid at all cost but I am not a purist either. Synthetic chemicals are everywhere and I do try to minimize exposure to and use of them when I can. But I am also not a purist and try not to go OCD on details and fears. Many are very concerned about this but think nothing of combusting cannabis or even tobacco.

    Too bad this thread died. In any case...my plants have been in 100% manure for almost 2 weeks now. The growth is insane and the plants are loving it. 20180529_112418.jpg 2018-05-29 13.32.55.jpg

    I have run heavy manure soil mixes. Typically heavy on chicken,horse, and cow mushroom composts. I never had a problem with burning or deficiencies. Usually added some other stuff later in the growth cycle but nothing heavy or exotic.

    R u using any gypsum?
    I'm not any way the guy to ask , don Tessa has rabbits , swears by them for compost , I buy yards of organic dairy horse compost from a county cooperative that has certificates , was using Bu's Blend from Malibu Compost excellent stuff
    Just cheaper to do my own with the local compost .
    Ya know maybe the rabbit manure is not aged enough?

    I don't add gypsum no. I think there might be some in my pre mixed nutes... (not by a bag to look right now)
    All manure is awesome but they all have different nute levels. I have access to tons of manure cheap so I use cow. I like that is low in everything so I have better control over what I use for nutes.

    Gypsum adds sulfur,that helps health , improves flavor in final product most importantly adds a lotta ca , helps with strong stems

    Lol I know what it is...but I use epsom salts so that is mag and sulfer. So I don't want to add more...not on purpose anyways. And my plants are good on the calcium part ;)
    But thanks :)

    Well every grower needs different ferts. What works for me won't always work for you. I don't need that much k because it's already in the mix...and since I grow organically there is no need for high levels of anything (that is what my bacteria and fungus is for) I supply a medium level of everything and just feed the soil bacteria from there.
    Manure is loaded already with micro and macro nutes and since there is a ton of lime stone here ..calcium and other amendments I don't need.
