How to Make Organic Fertilizer Using Chicken Manure?

When it comes to manures, there is none more desired for the vegetable garden than chicken manure. Chicken manure for vegetable garden fertilizing is excellent, but there are some things you need to know about it in order to use it correctly. Keep reading to learn more about chicken manure compost and how to use it in the garden.

Using Chicken Manure for Vegetable Garden Fertilizer

Chicken manure fertilizer is very high in nitrogen and also contains a good amount of potassium and phosphorus. The high nitrogen and balanced nutrients is the reason that chicken manure compost is the best kind of manure to use.
But the high nitrogen in the chicken manure is dangerous to plants if the manure has not been properly composted. Raw chicken manure fertilizer can burn, and even kill plants. Composting chicken manure mellows the nitrogen and makes the manure suitable for the garden.


Composting Chicken Manure
Chicken manure composting gives the manure time to break down some of the more powerful nutrients so that they are more usable by the plants.
Composting chicken manure is simple. If you have chickens, you can use the bedding from your own chickens. If you do not own chickens, you can locate a farmer who owns chickens and they will most likely be happy to give you the used chicken bedding. The next step in chicken manure composting is to take the used bedding and put it into a compost bin. Water it thoroughly and then turn the pile every few weeks to get air into the pile. It takes about six to nine months, on average, for chicken manure compost to be done properly. The exact amount of time it takes for composting chicken manure depends on the conditions under which it is composted. If you are uncertain how well your chicken manure has been composted, you can wait up to 12 months to use your chicken manure compost. Once you have finished chicken manure composting, it is ready to use. Simply spread the chicken manure compost evenly over the garden. Work the compost into the soil with either a shovel or a tiller. Chicken manure for vegetable garden fertilizing will produce excellent soil for your vegetables to grow in. You will find that your vegetables will grow bigger and healthier as a result of using chicken manure fertilizer.

How to Produce Bio Organic Fertilizer with Chicken Manure?

Green organic fertilizer is based on chicken manure and straw raw materials, which is produced by organic fertilizer making machine using multidimensional complex enzyme. This enzyme is an eco-zymophyte agent composed of 106 kinds of beneficial microorganisms that can produce a variety of enzymes, including lactobacillus series, heat-resistant Bacillus group, bifidobacterium group, yeast and other groups. The bio organic fertilizer is non-toxic to humans and animals. It approves can nitrogen fixation, Phosphate and potassium dissolving. In addition, it decomposes fertilizer and chemical pesticide, thus it increases yield and quality for farming and aquaculture.

  1. Fertilizer making machine: you need a fertilizer mixer, a fertilizer plant for several square meters. If you want to produce commercial organic fertilizer, organic fertilizer granulator machine is necessary for your production.
  2. Organic fertilizer raw materials: Taking one ton of chicken manure as an example, you need one ton of chicken manure, 0.3 tons of straw powder, 5 kg cornmeal and 8 kg species.
  3. Organic fertilizer production process: mixing chicken manure, straw powder, cornmeal and strains→composting→granulation→drying and cooling→packaging

Firstly, mix the right amount of chicken manure and straw powder. How much straw powder you add is depended on water content. It usually needs 45% moisture. How to know the water content whether is proper? You can hold the materials in a ball. Water can be seeped from fingers but not dripping. When you open your hand, the ball can be scattered. Then add bacteria and cornmeal. The role of cornmeal is to increase the sugar for bacteria fermentation.

Secondly, add raw materials to fertilizer mixer for mixing in order to make materials uniform, leaving no green blocks.

The mixed ingredients are piled 1.5 meters wide and 0.8-1 meters long. Then turn it with compost mixer turner for fermentation.

Composting can heat up within one day and decomposition in 7 days. Specifically speaking, the temperature of composting can reach to 60 ℃ -80 ℃ in the first day, killing E. coli, eggs and other pests and diseases. In the next day, it can eliminate the smell of chicken manure. In the third day, compost becomes loose and dry covered with white mycelium. In the fourth day, it gives off a koji flavor. In the fifth to seventh day, fermentation is mature. Then the materials can be granulated into organic fertilizer pellets with fertilizer granulator machine.  (See more organic fertilizer production process)

Organic matter content in green organic fertilizer is more than 45%, which is a nutritionally complete organic fertilizer. If it is added in different elements, it will form vegetables, flowers, fruit trees, cotton and oil crops and other special fertilizer.
