Certainly not this scenario. The local Council bought land with a view
to piping such "fertilizer" onto it to grow trees... the project was
quickly thwarted by a savvy public outcry.
Without being fanatical about it, we have adopted a shut front gate
policy on actively importing soil amendments, manures etc. By way
of an example, a friend had part of her "organic" hay crop spoilt by
rain so we stretched the principle and helped her get it off the
paddock but otherwise it _no_ to imports.
