i found this ,sorry it so long, Fresh human urine is sterile (unless there is a urinary tract infection ??? this urine should not be used) and free from bacteria. Dilute urine 10-15 parts water to 1 part urine for application on plants in the growth stage.
Dilute to 30-50 parts water to 1 part urine for use on potted plants as they are much more sensitive to Fertilizers of any kind. Trees, shrubs and lawn should cope well without dilution, but it???s important not to
Overload individual plants with a consistent nitrogen input. Apply the diluted solution to the soil beneath Fruiting plants and avoids getting it on the fruit and foliage as the high nitrogen levels can ???burn??? leaves.
Stop using urine liquid fertilizer on all food plants at least two weeks before harvesting. Adding undiluted Human urine to your compost heap will help heat it up quickly and will add to the overall nutrient value. I did said sorry
