    The farmer who collected the manure and was going to spread it on his barley wasnt risking his crops seeing as the chemical present in the manure only controls certain plants ie thistles and nettles therefore no harm would come to his crop , why I am all for organic growing I do realise that without the use of chemicals Britain would be unable to feed its burgeoning population
