- Jul 11, 2008Urea in small amounts is readily available as a soluble plant
fertilizer. If hard pressed use urine.
If you cannot 'backslop', do as Harry suggested, autolyze baker's
yeast by quicky boiling a slurry to breakdown the yeast cells and
release the nutrients. You only need about 1tsp inactivated yeast/4l
as a nutrient.
