Abstract: Agricultural pollution is major environmental pollutants and is caused by excessive use of chemicals, which ultimately deteriorate the soil health when applied continuously for better yield, also it pollute surface and ground water quality and it account for emission of tons of green house gases. Hence the study was taken with a view to evaluate opportunities and possibilities of usage of recycled human waste in the agricultural production, highlighting the general sanitation crisis, fertilizer scenarios and its limits, constraints and cost. The aim of the study was to promote the use of humanure onto the agricultural crops/lands, which addresses the consequences of changes in agricultural production with respect to ecology, environment and economy. From the study it is found that initially it produce lower yield but for long run yield is projected to be high. A study was also carried out on Kinetics of the decay of Humanure with various additives and it is found that the macronutrients content of Humanure can be enhanced by using the combination of Saw Dust, Rice Husk and Wood Ash as additives.
