The same way human excrement is frowned at as a source of manure in crop cultivation; human urine is in same category.

It is a huge debate in public health and safety about the potential of contamination with infections of human origin.

Manure from composted wastes of poultry, plants, cow dungs and other sources does not raise such worries. Cultivated crops need more than ammonia (Nitrogen) found in urine.

For healthy crop nutrition and production, more than 16 essential nutrients are required. Urine has only one

Unless it can be filtered or the microorganisms killed, it is highly dangerous.

There’s nothing special about d use of human urine or feaces as farm ammendment, the problem is d bulk handling..........I for one would love those shit trucks in lagos travel down to my land and empty their content evenly around my farm, it lies in fallow for that year and i cultivate the next year............
Well composted, im sure those northerners that rush poultry waste in december will shift focus

Seems u r inxperienced in the scene.

If bulk handling, procurement and application are no challenges in poultry manure, why is it not same in your human shit and urine technology?

I am amused at your 1year fallow obsolete technology in a farm land u just applied human shit? Do u know the meaning, rational and reason for fallow in d face of diminishing arable land and population explosion?

Anyway, goodluck in ur shit cultivation. But please clearly label your produce "shit produced" in the market for ur customers.
