Urine as Liquid Fertilizer in Agricultural Production in the Philippines

Published by Robert Gensch
This field guide has been developed to accommodate the ever-increasing demand for more detailed and scientifically backed information on how to use urine in agricultural production. It is intended primarily for practitioners and experts in the water, sanitation, planning, and agriculture sectors, as well as local and national government officials from the various sectors, NGO and individuals interested and working in the field of agriculture and sustainable sanitation in the Philippines and the wider Southeast Asian region.

This publication is a collaborative effort of the XU Sustainable Sanitation Center, the Philippine Sustainable Sanitation Knowledge Node, the Philippine Ecosan Network, and the SuSanA working group on food security and productive sanitation. It provides practical, easy-to-understand and mostly picture-based guidance and covers key aspects of the urine use starting from the link between sanitation and agriculture, basic plant requirements, characteristics of human urine and its potential as a liquid fertilizer over health risk management, to the use of urine as liquid fertilizer including detailed application recommendations and alternative urine use options.


The manual is based on the existing international SEI EcoSanRes publication ‘Practical Guidance on the Use of Urine in Crop Production’ (RICHERT et al. 2010), research findings of a countrywide urine reuse study conducted in 3 study sites representing the 3 main Philippine regions (Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao) and on the rich existing practical experiences from all over the Philippines.
