Cow Stable Drainage For Fruit

I have been told that the drainings from a cow barn make an excellent

fertilizer for orange and lemon trees, in fact, anywhere on plants where

manure is considered beneficial.

The drainage from a cow barn is excellent for fertilizing almost any

crop unless it is used in too large quantity. If it should be combined

with a considerable amount of water used for cleaning out the stable, it

would be excellent for the irrigation of all kinds of fruit trees. Care

should be taken, however, not to oversaturate the ground, which would be

the case if the washing of the stable was allowed to run continuously

alongside a single row of trees. The water should be changed from row to

row in succession, cultivating the ground meantime to promote aeration

and to prevent too great compacting of the soil.
