Is Alpaca Manure Good Fertilizer?

Using alpaca manure as fertilizer is beneficial. Even with its lower organic content, alpaca manure is considered a rich soil conditioner. Alpaca fertilizer improves the soil quality and its ability to retain water. It is also good for plants with a fair amount of nitrogen and potassium and about average levels of phosphorus.

Since alpaca manure is mostly found in pellet form and doesn't have the same components as other livestock feeders like cows and horses, it does not need to be aged or composted before use. You can spread it directly onto garden plants without burning them. Best of all, it does not contain any weed seeds so there's no worry about plucking sprouts from the garden following application, as with some types of manure.
How Do I Use Alpaca Manure as Fertilizer?

Generally, you can find bags of alpaca manure available from online retailers or alpaca farmers. Those raising alpacas can even obtain it straight from the source. When using alpaca fertilizer, you can put it on top of the garden soil and then water it or wait and let the rain help soak it in.

For those in colder climates, you can also spread the manure over snow-filled garden beds and allow it to soak into the soil as the snow melts. Either way alpaca manure breaks down rather quickly.
Alpaca Fertilizer Tea

Alpaca manure tea is another option for fertilizing garden plants. This is especially helpful for giving seedlings a jump start. Simply mix about a third cup of alpaca manure to every 2/3 cup of water and let it sit overnight. Then, use the manure tea to water your plants.
