The ultimate proof of the usefulness of eco-humus and urine in agriculture is to demonstrate its effect on plant growth and yield directly. This chapter describes a series of trials in which the growth and yield of vegetables planted in humus derived from the Fossa alterna were studied. In some cases the trials involved comparing the growth of vegetables planted directly in Fossa humus with plants grown on other soils. However this is an uneconomical way of using the humus. The best method is to mix the humus with less fertile soils.
