    Will urine helps to plant to grow?

    Urine is an excretive product from human and animal. Urine contains several minerals like urea, nitrogen which helps to plant to grow. It also includes Sodium Chloride which results in a good growth in the plant. Do you think urine helps us to plant to grow? Knowledgeable members, please respond to the question

    Not so long ago, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari had made a statement about using urine to make plants grow. The statement can be searched online.

    I used to be an avid gardener and a lot of stuff that I read, during that phase, about making organic fertilisers and compost mentioned using urine.

    Though urine is rich in nutrients the same can be highly concentrated and that could actually damage the plants (burn them) rather than benefit them if used undiluted.

    Yes. Urine contains several minerals and salt. That is actually an organic fertiliser. But as mentioned in #644138 it is very concentrated and may have to be used after diluting. Controlled feeding of this to plants will be beneficial.
    But the smell is another problem in using this for plants.

    When we can use human excrete, animal excrete as compost, we can use the urine of human and animal too as good fertilizer. Yes. As urine contains minerals that would affect the plants if not diluted, we should be careful in using it for the growth of plants.
