COURSE 3: REUSE OF ECOSAN PRODUCTS IN AGRICULTURE



Course

Introduction:


This course consists of 2 units. In this course we will discuss the details of agricultural benefits of using sanitised urine, faeces and greywater. We will start with some slides on global hunger issues, to show how important it is to use any resources available for food production wisely. The guidelines are discussed on how to reuse safely, how often you can apply it, and on which types of soils and plants.
