  • Many Countries Reaching Diminishing Returns in Fertilizer Use

    When German chemist Justus von Liebig demonstrated in 1847 that the major nutrients that plants removed from the soil could be applied in mineral form, he set the stage for the development of the fertilizer industry and a huge jump in world food production a century later. Growth in food production during the nineteenth century came primarily from expanding cultivated area. It was not until the ...

  • Ammonia sanitization of blackwater for safe use as fertilizer

    Source-separated blackwater from low-flush toilets contains plant-available nutrients and can be used as a fertilizer. The aim of the study was to evaluate the impact on pathogen inactivation when treating blackwater with urea and/or lime. Blackwater was spiked with Salmonella typhimurium, Escherichia coli O157, Enterococcus faecalis, and Ascaris ...

  • Monitoring of soil fertility

    Background In agriculture and forestry soil fertility is a decisive factor for the economic use of fields and forests. Various factors, considered as a whole are the indicators which characterize the soil fertility. Important parameters are e.g.: Intensity of precipitation, air temperature, air humidity, soil humidity, suction power and soil temperature in various depths. ...

  • Analysis of Organic Fertilizer Market

    Organic fertilizer is processed by fermenting the animal and plant residues, it not only contains major elements that plant required such as nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, also contains microelements such as molybdenum, zinc, iron, copper and other trace elements which is ...


  • Fertilizer law regulations for the use of organic wastes list of types, delimination, declaration

    Since 07.10.1996, regulations in the fertiliser law must be observed in addition to other waste management regulations regarding the utilization of organic waste. I have described the legal requirements for the distribution of fertilisers regarding registered fertiliser types, type definitions and declaration of fertilisers in general and for secondary raw-material fertilisers in particular. The ...

  • Effect of deficit irrigation and fertilization on cucumber

    Soil water budgets are essential in determining the proper timing and amount of irrigation. Organic fertilizers can be substituted for commercial fertilizers; however, information is sparse on the interaction of irrigation management and nutrient source on cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) production. This study evaluated nutrient source and irrigation management on growth and yield of cucumber grown ...

  • State Fertilizer Officials Focus on Compost

    For two years, the U.S. Composting Council’s (USCC) marketing committee has been meeting with the American Association of Plant Food Control Officials (AAPFCO) to discuss how the two organizations could work together to create a uniform compost bill to be given to each state legislature to consider adopting into law. AAPFCO is an organization of fertilizer control officials from each state in the ...

  • Nitrogen recovery from source-separated human urine using clinoptilolite and preliminary results of its use as fertilizer

    The use of source separated human urine as fertilizer is one of the major suggestions of the new sanitation concept ECOSAN. Urine is rich in nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium which act as plant nutrients, however its salinity is high for agricultural and landscape purposes. Moreover, characteristics change significantly throughout storage where salinity increases to higher values as the ...

  • Fecal sludge-derived pellet fertilizer in maize cultivation

    Fecal sludge (FS) contains significant amounts of plant nutrients and organic matter although it also contains pathogens. Therefore, FS can be used as fertilizer after proper sanitization. This study was designed to test dried fecal sludge (DFS)-based pellet fertilizers on maize cultivation. The DFS fertilizers were produced by composting, co-composting with sawdust, or irradiated by ...

  • Local fertilizer manufacturing: A new look at agro-business

    The American farmer works in a tough business. Aside from the demanding physical and mechanical processes to raise fertile crops from tiny seeds, the farmer must also battle against supply for adequate water, the right seeds, pest and weed control products, and various fertilizers. All these elements have added stress and cost to bring a crop to market, making it less profitable than ever to ...

  • Do synergistic relationships between nitrogen and water influence the ability of corn to use nitrogen derived from fertilizer and soil?

    To improve site-specific N recommendations a more complete understanding of the mechanisms responsible for synergistic relationships between N and water is needed. The objective of this research was to determine the influence of soil water regime on the ability of corn (Zea mays L.) to use N derived from fertilizer and soil. A randomized split-block experiment was conducted in 2002, 2003, and ...

  • How to Properly Select Organic Fertilizer Equipment

    With rapid development of our society, more and more large-scale organic fertilizer processing factories appear. Coupled with the expensive labor costs and other factors, at present more and more people begin to choose organic fertilizer production line. A set of organic fertilizer production line ...

  • Will variable-rate nitrogen fertilization using corn canopy reflectance sensing deliver environmental benefits?

    Within-field variability of corn (Zea mays L.) N need calls for development of precision fertilizer application strategies. One approach many are investigating is in-season canopy reflectance sensing. Justification for this strategy partly rests with the premise it will improve N use and reduce N loss from fields. The objective of this study was to determine the potential environmental benefits ...

  • Rice production with minimal irrigation and no nitrogen fertilizer by intensive use of treated municipal wastewater

    We designed a new cultivation system of rice with circulated irrigation to remove nitrogen from treated municipal wastewater effectively and assessed the possibility of nitrogen removal in the new system without any adverse effects on rice production through bench-scale experiments through two seasons. Overgrowth of the rice plant, which can lead to lodging and tasteless rice, was found in the ...
