In the field next to us, there is a mound of chicken manure, say 400 tons of it. We had it tested when we were fighting the farmer's plants to extend his chicken cruelty business. It has Listeria, Salmonella, Clostrydium (spelling?) and one or two other nasty bacteria living in it. I would not put that stuff on my land for anything. We were advised not to eat anything from our garden unless it was cooked.
Boiled lettuce anyone?
Not that I am trying to put anyone off manuring their land, just warning of the possible dangers, so that they think first.
