Pesticides and manure
In addition to the desired effect on pest and weed, pesticides are frequently toxic for other plants, animals and the human being as well. In particular older products frequently contain highly dangerous substances for health, but even environment friendly substances may be harmful and destroy the natural balance between plants, beneficial animals and pest. Inappropriately disposed of animal corpses are dangerous for the human being and the environment. Products against voles based phosphides should not come into contact with water (danger of ignition and explosion).
Ask your reseller or organisms for the protection of the environment about alternative preparations or methods. Only use as much manure and pesticides as is absolutely necessary. Use organic manure as for instance compost or horse manure and proceed to an analysis of the soil quality to assess the needs for manure.
