  • Data Collection: A Growing Trend in Hydroponics

    Hydroponic farming has certain inherent advantages. Plants grown hydroponically will mature on average 25% faster and deliver up to 30% greater yield than plants grown in soil. Creating the conditions necessary for such an increase in plant efficiency requires very close monitoring of the growing environment. Knowing exactly what conditions your plants are growing in at every stage of plant ...

  • Economic Benefit of Producing Slow-acting NPK Complex Fertilizer

    Because of the low utilization rate of chemical fertilizer, people try to make a slow-release and high-utilization fertilizer to meet the demand of nitrogen in different growth stages of crops, reduce the loss of nitrogen leaching and volatilization, reduce the fixation of phosphorus and potassium fertilizers in the soil, so that the fertilizer can supply nutrients according to the requirement of ...

  • Sheep manure organic fertilizer production line

    Sheep manure organic fertilizer is a new type of high-quality organic fertilizer specially treated by organic matter that is not completely digested by sheep. It is suitable for geological improvement of alkaline land and barren land, and has a good effect on improving crop yield. Because the sheep is a ruminant and rarely drink water, the feces are dry and fine, and the amount of feces is also ...

  • Application of organic fertilizer production line

    The application of organic fertilizer also satisfied our search for green and organic food. Because the organic fertilizer produced by the fertilizer equipment is full of nutrients and rich in organic matter, it can improve the soil. Because the improved soil can satisfy all kinds of nutrients needed for the growth of crops, the cultivated fruits and vegetables are also labeled green and organic, ...

  • How to solve the problem of fertilizer caking?

    The longer the fertilizer is placed, the easier it is to agglomerate. The shorter the time is, the less easy it is to agglomerate. In order to prevent caking, we should pay attention to the following aspects in the fertilizer production process. 1. ...

  • How to maintain fertilizer manufacturing equipment

    Fertilizer equipment is an important tools for fertilizer manufacturing process. Fertilizers processed by fertilizer equipment have abundant and diverse nutrients, which are rich in materials needed by vegetation and can meet the needs of various nutrients for crop growth. After fertilizer equipment is put into production, attention should also be paid to maintenance and maintenance, not just ...

  • How to produce high quality and high efficiency organic fertilizer in organic fertilizer production line?

    1. There are not enough effective bacteria in the organic fertilizer production line, so we can't talk about biological bacteria fertilizer. Our molding and drying system ensures the number of viable bacteria. Therefore, the materials used to produce organic fertilizer must be completely fermented and decomposed. The fertilizer equipment of the ...

  • What Is The Effect Of Cassava On Health?

     Cassava (yuca) is a starchy tuberous root of tropical perennial trees and used as food in tropical countries. The cassava plant is native to South America. The cassava crop was grown as alternative to rice, potato or corn (maize) in olden days. Nigeria in Africa is top production country of cassava in the world and Thailand is top producer of cassava in Asia. Cassava is an excellent ...

  • Humic Acid Factory - Case Study

    Humic acids or humus are black or dark brown substances formed by plant or animal residues that are partially or completely decayed. Humus is a substance that facilitates the uptake of fertilizers. Today, the increasing use of chemical fertilizers causes the humus in our land to be rapidly depleted. In order to solve this problem, more and more humic substances (humic acid and fulvic acid) are ...

  • Bio-organic fertilizer production process

    Bio-organic fertilizer refers to fertilizer that is processed by microbial fermentation, decomposing and harmless treatment, using livestock manure, straw, agricultural and sideline products and food processing waste, organic waste and municipal sludge. The effect of bio-organic fertilizer: (1) ...

  • Are you over watering your pasture?

    Getting the right amount of moisture to each paddock on your property to ensure grass grows well and property doesn’t scour or erode from uncontrolled water runoff is the holy grail of New Zealand farmers. Unfortunately, many assume that their irrigation company will get this sorted for them and expect that when they part out significant investments in large irrigation systems, that at ...

  • 8 t/h double roller granulator NPK fertilizer production process

    Nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, which are the major nutrients in soil, cannot meet the needs of crop growth, so fertilizers containing nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium are needed to supplement them. Fertilizer can not only improve soil fertility, but also is an important measure to improve crop yield per unit area.Fertilizer is the most fundamental and important material input in ...

  • The difference between organic fertilizer and chemical fertilizer

    Difference between organic fertilizer and chemical fertilizer Chemical fertilizer, manufactured by chemical or physical methods, containing one or more nutrient elements for crop growth. Also known as inorganic fertilizers, including nitrogen, phosphate, potash, micronutrients, compound fertilizers, etc. It has strong pertinence and quick effect. There are many kinds of chemical ...

  • Annual Output 30,000 tons double roller granulator NPK fertilizer production process

    Nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, which are the major nutrients in soil, cannot meet the needs of crop growth, so fertilizers containing nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium are needed to supplement them.

  • 3,4-Dimethylpyrazole Phosphate Solution

    Nitrification inhibitor refers to a class of chemical substances that inhibit the biotransformation of ammonium nitrogen into nitrate nitrogen (NCT). Nitrification inhibitors reduce the formation and accumulation of nitrate in soil so that it can reduce the loss of nitrogenous fertilizer in the form of nitrate nitrogen and the impacting on ecological environment. Some results show that, although ...

  • Plant reduces recycled phosphorus levels with biostimulation - Case Study

    Problem A Texas utility struggled with elevated levels of sidestream phosphorus recycled to the treatment plant headworks from the aerobic digesters. The plant had documented increased phosphorus from decant and from downstream centrate, elevating effluent phosphorus and potentially affecting permit compliance. Staff investigated using a biostimulant in the digesters to improve ...

  • Urease Inhibitors

    Urease inhibitors are a class of chemical agents that inhibit urease activity in soil and delay urea hydrolysis. Soil urease is a specific hydrolase that catalyzes the hydrolysis of urea in soil. There are two main aspects to the mechanism of urease inhibitors controlling urea hydrolysis. One is due to the oxidation of SH to reduce urease activity.The second is to compete for ligands to reduce ...

  • N-(N-butyl)thiophosphoric triamide/NBPT

    Urease inhibitor is a kind of substance that can inhibit the activity of soil urease, and it is a new technology which has been studied in urea or nitrogen compound fertilizer. Using soil urease inhibitor can effectively slow decomposition of urea into ammonia process, reduce soil NH4 + and NH3 concentration, soil fertility and crop fertilizer synchronization. NBPT is the most effective ...
