  • Knowledge of Farm Practices – The Key for Successful Farming

    Agriculture plays an important part in the world economy. One-third of the economically active population obtains its livelihood from agriculture.

  • 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 ...

  • Connections: New Green Revolution

    We are in need of a new revolution in how food is grown. A growing population in combination with climate change has put heavy pressure on our current system. The last time this happened (about 50 years ago) we had the Green Revolution to save the day. Major improvements in crop breeding and the use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides resulted in enormous yield gains in farms across Asia, ...

  • Seasonal slug pressure warning – crops at greater risk

    Crops face a greater risk of slug damage and if left untreated, this can become extremely expensive for farmers, and is estimated to cost the potato industry up to £53 million per year*, as any slug damage reduces saleability and ultimately profitability of a crop. Slugs are most damaging to potatoes during the early stages of tuber bulking, which is starting to happen now. So make sure you ...

  • Soil fertilization with wastewater biosolids – monitoring changes in the ‘soil–fertilizer–plant’ system and phosphorus recovery options

    The aim of this study is to establish changes that may occur after a prolonged application of wastewater sludge treated to biosolids, in the ‘soil–fertilizer–plant’ system. Thirteen experimental plots with different soil types planted with experimental crops were investigated in order to evaluate the suitability of these biosolids as soil conditioners and fertilizers. The biosolids were ...

  • How the Earthworm Improves the Soil

    Nature has ways of converting vegetable and mineral raw materials into high-quality products. The inconspicuous earthworm provides striking example — it is a minirefinery in the soil. The dew worm or common earthworm, which is native to Europe, is just one of more than 3000 earthworm species in the world. About 30 centimeters long, the powerful earthworm digs ...

  • 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 ...

  • Fertilizer from dried human urine added to ash and lime – a potential product from eco-sanitation system

    This research explored the possibility of making fertilizer at a laboratory from source separated and untreated human urine added to ash and lime by drying at low temperatures. A mixture of ash and lime (1:1) was used as drying agent and human urine was applied as undiluted and fresh. Ash and lime were chosen as drying agents for maintaining a pH > 10 during the drying process, which should ...

  • Assessing the promotion of urine-diverting dry toilets through school-based demonstration facilities in Kalisizo, Uganda

    Urine-diverting dry toilets (UDDTs) are designed to recover nutrients and organic matter from human excreta for agricultural reuse. Their wider implementation could help address problems in areas where water scarcity limits coverage of sanitation systems and declining soil fertility jeopardizes nutritional security. Demonstration facilities can improve stakeholders’ views of UDDTs; however, it ...

  • Estimation of the degree of soil P saturation from Brazilian Mehlich-1 P data and field investigations on P losses from agricultural sites in Minas Gerais

    The degree of phosphorus saturation (DPS) of agricultural soils is studied worldwide for risk assessment of phosphorus (P) losses. In previous studies, DPS could be reliably estimated from water-soluble P (WSP) for European and Brazilian soils. In the present study, we correlated measured WSP and Mehlich-1 P (M1P) from soils of Minas Gerais (MG) and Pernambuco (PE) (R2 = 0.94, ...
