Didn't know that. Makes me wonder if putting a THIN layer of fresh manure 
around the orchard wouldn't be a disaster, if applied early enough in the 
year.(the cold climate hardening-off problem)  But it could still add 
organic matter and worm activity. Well rotted manure isn't always easy to 
come by.
