Manure was a type of organic matter which was used as fertilizer in agriculture on several different planets across the Milky Way Galaxy. The matter was known to contribute to the fertility of the soil by adding organic matter and nutrients.

One such planet beyond Earth to use manure were the Heiren of the planet Heir'tzan. In 2251, James T. Kirk and Gary Mitchell were forced to jump onto the back of a moving manure truck as they chased a group that had kidnapped a telepath, Perris Nodarh, who was needed for a reconciliation ceremony. (TOS - My Brother's Keeper novel: Republic)

In 2270, while enjoying a moment of fantasy on the Amusement Park planet dancing like Fred Astaire, Minnie Moskowitz's psychiatrist became distracted and tripped. She uttered a profanity, and in response the planet generated an appropriate heap of manure for her to fall into.
