  • Poul-AR Valorization of poultry manure - Fertilizer and energy from poultry manure

    Application In contrast with generic manure types, poultry manure is very rich in nutrients as nitrogen (N) & phosphorus (P), but also in organic material. Both the form and the N/P ratio in which the nutrients are present make the manure less suitable for direct application as natural fertilizer. It leads to the release of large and undesired amounts of volatile ammonia into the ...

  • Poultry Farm Pioneers Low-Rate Composting

    Tony Pastore, Sr. started Park Farms in Canton, Ohio decades ago to process and market chickens. In 1989, it was decided that instead of buying chickens from other producers, a new venture would be launched to raise chickens directly for Park Farms. This led to the formation of A & J Farms, a 1,900-acre operation that contains 14 separately operating chicken farms. Each sub-farm has up to ten ...

  • 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 ...

  • Anaerobic monodigestion of poultry manure: determination of operational parameters for CSTR

    In this work the anaerobic monodigestion for the treatment of turkey manure was evaluated, without its codigestion with another substrate. The effect of the organic loading rate (OLR) and the substrate concentration (high total solids (TS) concentration) or product concentration (high volatile fatty acids (VFA) and/or ammonia (NH3-N) concentrations) was studied. The results show that for a ...

  • Management of waste organic matters and residential used water for culture and biomass production of red worm (Tubifex tubifex)

    The efficacy of red worm (Tubifex tubifex) for converting organic wastes like pig dung, poultry excreta and dairy sludge into worm biomass production was investigated. For this purpose, three experiments each for pig dung, poultry excreta and dairy sludge were conducted in cement trenches for 90 days duration. The poultry excreta produced maximum biomass (126.53 ± 2.16 g), followed by the ...

  • Short-term effects of poultry litter application on silage maize yield and soil chemical properties

    If properly managed, poultry litter (PL) might be a good alternative to conventional fertilizers. This paper reports on a three-year field study to compare the effects of two consecutive PL and traditional mineral fertilizer applications on silage maize (Zea mays) production and soil chemical properties. The experiment was undertaken on volcanic soil in the Central-South Region of Chile. The PL ...

  • Organic amendment of an ultisol: effects on soil properties, growth, and yield of maize in Southern Guinea savanna zone of Nigeria

    Background:The Southern Guinea savanna zone of Nigeria is characterized by inherently low soil fertility status and rapid nutrient depletion especially soil organic matter. However, this zone is characterized by abundant agricultural land and is a potential for crop production. Field experiments were conducted in order to evaluate the effects of integrated use of agricultural waste materials and ...

  • Burn it no more!

    The other day I came across an old news article from 2008 about a Dutch energy plant that burns 485,000 tons of poultry litter each year, converting it into renewable electricity. Wow, I thought. That is an old-fashioned way of getting rid of poultry litter – they must be releasing some 14,550 tons nitrogen gas into the atmosphere. All this to produce 270,000 MWh of electricity, 890,000 MWh ...

  • The mineralization of nitrogen from compost in the tropics

    The application of organic matter is very important in maintaining high and stable crop yields under tropical conditions. Most of tropical soils are characterised by low content of organic matter and low structure stability. Animal wastes contain many nutrients, including nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium and other minerals. In addition to supplying nutrients, the application of animal wastes also ...
