  • Influence of marketing mix elements on the intention of sugarcane farmers in Thailand to use commercial tailor–made fertiliser

    Tailor–made fertiliser (TMF) is a new practice in Thailand that aims to achieve a more efficient use of a fertiliser on cultivated soil. This study attempts to determine farmers' attitudes toward a marketing mix of TMF and to investigate factors influencing the farmers' intention to use TMF in accordance with the marketing mix strategy. A survey was conducted among 387 sugar cane farmers who were ...

  • Effect of maturation of Grease trap compost on plant growth

    Although it is known that immature composts can depress plant growth, few studies have quantified this effect in real-world scenarios with field-grown crops. Glasshouse and field trials were used to investigate the effect of maturation of grease trap compost (GTC) on plant growth. Grease trap waste was composted for 7-14 d in an in-vessel reactor with shredded green waste, sawdust and chicken ...

  • The ManureEcoMine pilot installation: advanced integration of technologies for the management of organics and nutrients in livestock waste

    Manure represents an exquisite mining opportunity for nutrient recovery (nitrogen and phosphorus), and for their reuse as renewable fertilisers. The ManureEcoMine proposes an integrated approach of technologies, operated in a pilot-scale installation treating swine manure (83.7%) and Ecofrit® (16.3%), a mix of vegetable residues. Thermophilic anaerobic digestion was performed for 150 days, the ...

  • Wastes as fertilizer – Is this a way to lower food costs?

    Researchers in the UK think they may have found a way to produce fertilizers that should cut farmers’ costs and at the same time boost some types of renewable energy. Their scheme, which involves using waste material from anaerobic digesters and ash from burnt biomass, would also cut fossil fuel use and save natural resources. ...

  • Reduction of ammonia emissions during composting by Uncoupling of oxygen demand and heat removal

    Intensive pig production systems result in high emissions of ammonia, odour and greenhouse-gases (methane and laughing gas) by exhaust ventilation air. Moreover, large amounts of manure (faeces and urine) are produced with insufficient nearby land for applications (Imbeath, 1998). These outputs lead to environmental problems related to ...

  • Coir Green Husk Chips ( Coco Chips or Coir husk)

    Coconut husk is the outer layer of the coconut fruit, consisting of long fibers and sponge-like pith particles. In nature, the husk protects the inner germinating seed by resisting excess saturation and salt. The husk, which naturally helps the coconut stay in oat in water, also stays uniformly moist and does not rot. Husk chips (coco chips /Coco blocks) are used as a potting medium, due to their ...

  • Why Drip Irrigation Design is Crucial to Your Success

    Drip irrigation is one of the most cost-effective and efficient watering methods in agriculture. It has become incredibly popular in the past 50-years and has been widely adopted by agriculturalists in dozens of countries throughout the world. In simple term, drip irrigation works by sending water through plastic pipes into drip emitters. These emitters are specifically designed to release water ...

  • Composting of a mixture of orange and cotton Industrial wastes and the influence of adding olivemill Wastewater

    The rapid expansion of the agro-industry during recent decades has led to the increasing production of organic wastes. Some such agroindustrial wastes are olive mill wastewater (OMW), the waste from orange juice extraction (OW) and the waste from cotton gins (CW). The OMW resulting from olive oil production contains olive pulp, mucilage, pectin, oil, the vegetable water of the fruit and the water ...

  • Organic Fertilizer Benefits

    Organic Fertilizer Benefits – Why not use synthetic fertilizers? It’s a reasonable question. After all, nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium ARE chemicals, so where is the advantage in these bags of heavy, grainy stuff, that need to be measured and mixed and then dug in, when you can just pick up a small plastic bottle of the blue stuff? There are several organic fertilizer ...

  • Monitoring greenhouse gases from biofuel crops

    Global issues such as climate change and energy security have driven rapid growth in renewable energy production - wind, solar, tidal, geothermal, hydro, biofuels etc. However, logically, each of these methods should deliver a net benefit in terms of greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction, so researchers in the United States have employed portable FTIR analysers to study the GHG emissions of biomass ...
