Urine: the ultimate 'organic' fertiliser?

I realize it's bad form to revive a thread this old, but...I was just wondering those of you using urine as a fertilizer, when do you apply? When the plants are established? Sprouts? When an established plant seems droopy? 

I've been "activating" the compost heap since reading through this thread and wondered about when I can begin using my homemade fertilizer on the plants I just planted...

Not bad at all, wyldhawk. Honestly, no experience with urine as catalyst. I am a nurse, and it depends on what meds or what your renal function is to recommend this at all! I use organic blood meal for my nitrogen source...slow release, nice, does no damage.

I think plantoid uses urine in his composting! Right, plantoid?

Wyldhawk, If an older thread fits, use it. No need to start a new one. In fact, sometimes I will merge a new one into an older one.

 Yes frequently  ,
As we live in a small rural hamlet where some folk seem to think it is wrong to take a leak in public , it's extracted out of public view in the garage or shed in a bucket .  Diluted with 20 parts of water it's poured over the compost heap . It is sterile at the time of delivery but quickly attracts all manner of microorganisms .

Never use it in a watering can or sprayer on your greens , salad stuff or  fruit  because you'll end up giving yourself things like E Coli problems which can be fatal .
