  • Chicken Manure Management, Recycling, and Composting

    Chicken Manure Fertilizer Manufacturing Process If you have chickens, you will have manure. Fortunately, chicken manure is among the most prized of manures. Fresh chicken manure is considered a “hot” manure, which is unsuitable for immediate use. Chicken manure needs to be composted and aged at least two to three months before you add it to your garden. If you don’t wait ...

  • Soil properties and crop yields in response to mixed paper mill sludges, dairy cattle manure, and inorganic fertilizer application

    The contribution of organic wastes to crop yields and soil fertility may be influenced by their composition and the soil type. This 6-yr study (2001–2006) evaluated the effects of repeated additions of mineral fertilizers (MF), mixed paper mill sludges (PMS) (18, 36, and 54 Mg ha–1), dairy cattle manure (DCM) (36 Mg ha–1) alone or with reduced mineral fertilizer (60% NPK) (RMF) and a control, on ...

  • Marketing waste mixed compost

    Marketing of compost has come a long way over the past 15 to 20 years. Today the word “compost” is an almost everyday household term and the use of compost is now a preferred way to garden. With the ever-increasing product awareness of the benefits of compost, it has become easier for compost manufacturers and marketers to sell their products. At least this is the case for those companies that ...

  • Effects of green manure and compost of pea plant on wheat

    Cereal based cropping systems have been established for food security in many countries where farmers use plenty of chemical fertilizers, but adoption of leguminous crop in the system is not popular. Excessive use of fertilizers is responsible for health and environmental hazards. Adoption of legume in cereal based cropping systems and improvement of organic fertilizer are needed to reduce ...

  • Zoos, farms, companies converting manure to compost, biofuel

    Dan Corum calls himself “the doctor of doo,” the “minister of muck” and the “number one of number two.” Even though he enjoys making fun of his role as compost/recycling coordinator at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, he — and others involved in using manure for compost or biofuel — are deadly serious about their efforts. Composting of manure from ...

  • Animal Manure or Sludge Organic Fertilizer Production

    Introduction of Animal Manure or Sludge Organic Fertilizer Production Line Organic fertilizer production line is designed for producing organic fertilizer from animal manure or sludge, without any chemical ingredients. As chickens, pigs have a poor digestion, can only consume 25% of the nutrients, so other 75% of feed nutrients with feces discharge can be produced to the dry ...

  • Closed loop system takes manure and methane

    A CONVERSION plant in Mead, Nebraska is processing manure and methane to create ethanol and compost. According to Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman: “This plant sets a new standard for ethanol production in this state and our nation, and is an example of the innovation needed to take this industry to the next level. It lets America get its automotive fuel from the croplands of the Midwest instead ...

  • Digested Dairy Manure To High-End Potting Soil

    Robert Joblin and Ted Sniegocki of Cenergy USA based in Little Rock, Arkansas, are not horticulturalists or agronomists. But they are anaerobic digester developers and when falling rates for renewable energy and the loss of the federal Investment Tax Credit grant hit at the same time, the financial models they had been using “fell down.” The need for additional revenue streams for AD ...

  • Dutch Farmers Find It Pays To Manage Poultry Manure

    Poultry farmers in Holland face challenges similar to their North American counterparts in dealing with manure from concentrated operations where there is insufficient cropland for application. This creates a need for exporting manure from the producing farm to users in other places. Poultry operations in Holland differ from most North American poultry farms in that most are not vertically ...

  • Nitrogen immobilization and mineralization kinetics of cattle, hog, and Turkey manure applied to soil

    Nitrogen mineralization and immobilization following manure application are critical processes influencing plant N supply and offsite N losses. We conducted laboratory experiments to examine the influence of these two processes in addition to N oxide gas production on N availability for 180 d following manure addition. A Tara loam (fine-silty, mixed, superactive, frigid Aquic Hapludoll) and a ...

  • Extreme weather: A mixed bag for dead zones

    This year’s extreme weather events—a warm winter, even warmer summer, and a drought that covered nearly two-thirds ...

  • Relationships between immobilized Phosphorus uptake in two grain legumes and soil bioactive Phosphorus pools in fertilized and manure-amended soil

    Mixing P-immobilizing additives with manure has raised concerns of irreversible reduction in P availability to growing crops. A potted plant growth experiment was conducted to characterize cattle manure P mineralization as modified by iron amendments and uptake by pigeon pea (Cajanus cajan L. Millsp.) and soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.]. Triple superphosphate, untreated, or manure amended with ...

  • Latest Progress in Anaerobic Digestion

    Compared to countries like Germany and Denmark, the United States and Canada have a long way to go in creating the fundamental policy incentives and regulatory mandates that will encourage market development for anaerobic digestion (AD). Someone recently asked me how many years it would take to deploy AD systems on farms in North America that are large enough to economically use them. Given ...

  • Process parameters analysis for the vermicomposting of shredded paper using Pheretimoid Spp.

    This study was to assess the effect of new species of earthworms, Pheretimoid Spp., on vermicomposting and compare the quality of vermicompost against compost produced from the same mix ratio of shredded office paper (SOP) together with grass clippings (GC) and cow manure (CM). Two composting experiments were setup in rotary drum composters namely: 1) composting of SOP, GC and CM followed by ...

  • Worming the way to finished compost

    SCREENING AND GRINDING When materials from CR&R and other generators are unloaded, a preliminary screening separates out nonorganic contaminants.    Even though there are source separated programs in places like Temecula and Lake Elsinore, there is the occasional appearance of plastic and glass that needs to be sorted out. Next, Bodlak’s crews put materials through a Vermeer tub ...

  • 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 ...

  • Effect of covering composting piles with mature compost on ammonia emission and microbial community structure of composting process

    Received for publication February 14, 2008. To control ammonia (NH3) volatilization from the dairy cattle (Bos taurus) manure composting process, a compost pile was covered with mature compost and the gas emissions evaluated using the dynamic chamber system. The peak of NH3 volatilization observed immediately after piling up of the compost was reduced from 196 to 62 mg/m3 by covering the compost ...

  • Empowering Alberta: Pioneering spirit gives boost to province`s alternative energy projects

    While biofuels are getting plenty of attention these days, biorefining - the process of converting biomass into biofuels and bioproducts that may also produce energy - is evolving.
