I was just reading about the new regs that are to go into affect. Will this affect any of you all that do the Farmers Markets? What got my attention was the use of manure as fertilizer.
Oh I agree Jim just was curious if there were going to be some kind of certifications or what the article was a little hard to understand.Know this probably is more for imports but seems like it always affects the wrong people when they do these things.Jim in NC said:Don't use any on my stuff, and not too worried about FDA regs. I want stuff to be safe cuz we eat it too!!!I personally think there is not enough people empowered to enforce all these regs.
i was wondering tor my curiosity what is the deal on manure as fertilizer up here we can only apply amount per acre and only apply when ground isnt frozen so it goes in and doesnt run off thanksStephenscity said:I was just reading about the new regs that are to go into affect.

Dave wasn't a link it was an article in our local paper. Will see what I can find Recycle has already gone but will see if they published online.BigDaveinKY said:Hey Mike can you post a link to what you found. I followed Brandon's link, but got the runaround to several broken links trying to find any new regulations. :?
I like that never heard that term before gonna remember that one :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:BigDaveinKY said:Thanks Mike, you're right really no specifics in that article. We've used "barn squeezins" all my life and never had anyone get sick or die from eating what grew.
That's how I was taught to plant tomato sets. Dig a hole 6" deep add 2" of "barn squeezins", two inches of dirt, drop in the plant, water well, and cover the roots.
Never had any that ever tasted like manure. :?
I don't think so. If you aint steped in it,shoveled it or hit it with a front tractor tire running to fast something would be lost in the translation.Jim in NC said:
That was one of the reasons I always prefered tractors with fenders :lol: :lol: :lol:gordon1121 said:
