Processing and Application of Composted Manures

Turning Waste into Wealth for Greener Fields The processing and application of composted manures play a crucial role in enhancing agricultural practices. Goat and sheep manure, in particular, offer valuable benefits due to their nutrient-rich and naturally pelleted form. Composting this manure not only deactivates potential hazards like pathogens and weed seeds but also produces organic fertilizers, contributing to sustainable and productive farming while minimizing environmental risks.

Value Addition to Poultry Manure

Transforming waste into wealth The technology, "Poultry Manure Value Addition," involves processing chicken manure to create a nutrient-rich organic fertilizer. This practice addresses challenges associated with raw manure, such as pathogens, root damage, and odor. By composting and applying value addition methods, the manure becomes a valuable input for enhancing soil fertility and improving crop yields in agricultural production. This technology primarily contributes to the pre-production phase of the agricultural value chain, focusing on the processing of organic fertilizers before they are utilized in crop cultivation or livestock farming.

Banana Peels: Peels as Feed and Organic Resource

From Waste to Resource Peels from bananas and plantains, often overlooked, hold significant value in various applications. They serve as animal feed, organic soil input, and even find uses in cooking, water purification, and beauty products. However, the challenge lies in their chemical composition and nutrient ratios, necessitating proper handling for animal feed and soil treatment. Despite their potential, a lack of awareness about the diverse utility of peels has led to unnecessary waste accumulation in urban areas. Understanding and harnessing the multifaceted benefits of peels is essential for both sustainable agriculture and waste reduction.
