chemical fertilizer

(1) Organic fertilizer contains a lot of organic matter, with significant soil fertility effect; chemical fertilizers can only provide crop inorganic nutrients, long-term application will cause adverse effects on the soil.

(2) Organic fertilizer contains a variety of nutrients, including a comprehensive balance of nutrients; chemical fertilizer contained in a single nutrient. Long-term use of soil and food easily leads to nutrient imbalance.

(3) Organic fertilizer contains low nutrient content, so it needs a large amount of applications; and chemical fertilizer contains high nutrient content, so the application is a little less.

(4) Fertilizer effect of organic fertilizer is long; fertilizer effect of chemical fertilizer is short, easily lead to nutrient loss, pollution of the environment.

(5) Organic fertilizer is from natural resource, without any chemical synthesis of substances. Long-term application can improve the quality of agricultural products; chemical fertilizers is a pure chemical synthesis of substances. Improper application can reduce the quality of agricultural products.

(6) In the production and process of organic fertilizer making, as long as the full maturity of treatment, it can improve crop drought after the application of organic fertilizer.What’s more, it helps disease resistance, insect resistance, and reduces the use of pesticides; Long-term use of chemical fertilizers often requires a large number of chemical pesticides to maintain crop growth, likely to cause harmful substances in food.

(7) Organic fertilizers contain a large number of beneficial microorganisms, which can promote the process of biotransformation in soil. It is beneficial to the improvement of soil fertility. Long-term application of chemical fertilizers can inhibit the activities of soil microbes, resulting in the decrease of soil self-regulation ability.

Obviously, organic fertilizer wins. Organic fertilizer has much more advantages than chemical fertilizer. When we make organic fertilizer, we should adopt right method.

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.
