how much rabbit manure should I use per 100 square foot. I am putting in broccolli, cabbage and lettuce as fall crops.

SquashNut,
I never have enough and I end up just kind of sprinkling it on my beds. I'd like to be able to spread it a good inch or two thick and mix it into the top couple of inches of the bed though. Mine is mixed with dirt and straw; yours might be pure manure.

I guess I don't know the answer to your question but I'm interested in what others might have to say.

When i had a rabitt i could never get enough but think 100 pounds a hundred square feet tilled a bit would be about all you would want

you probably don't need near that much especialy for brocoli and lettus

my understanding was that rabit manure was mild enough that it was not likly to burn plants when tilled a bit

however none of your fall crops ar huge nitrogen users nothing like corn anyway

unless you have thousands of pounds of manure you can probably spread it all.

my understanding was that the urine contained a lot of nitrogen as amonia you may think about deluting that and watering with it , you don't want to splash it on the plants
