Using urine for crop fertilization

Summary

Sanitized human urine has been identified as an easily accessible, easily applicable, low-cost fertilization option with generally very promising results on different crops. The technique was especially appreciated by women because it is easy to get (without spending money). After the first application some did not recognize their farms because of the stage of plant development (very fast growth). Communities did not mention any cultural concerns regarding human urine application.
