Unlike chemical fertilizers, organic fertilizers provide nutrients to soil organisms in addition to plants, helping to build healthy soil rather than destroy it. Therefore, there are always business opportunities for bio-organic fertilizers. This article will introduce the production process of powdered organic fertilizers, and granular fertilizers can also be produced through organic fertilizer granulator machine.
Powder composting production line:
We know that any organic material can be processed into organic compost. In fact, after a crushing and screening process, the compost becomes a high-quality and marketable powdered organic fertilizer. That is to say, if you want to make organic fertilizer powder (such as neem cake powder, coconut bran powder, oyster shell powder organic fertilizer, dry cow dung powder organic fertilizer, etc.), the process you must go through includes: fully composting the raw materials, crushing the resulting compost, then sieve and pack. The organic material is stacked in two large stockpiles, which are periodically aerated by tumblers. The powder fertilizer production line uses a hydraulic compost turning machine for material pile composting. It is suitable for turning large quantities of stockpiles, such as stockpiles generated by whole communities and stockpiles collected by local authorities, as well as bulk food processing operations.
There are several parameters that affect the composting process, namely particle size, carbon-to-nitrogen ratio, moisture content, oxygen content, and temperature. During the entire composting process, attention should be paid to:
1. Crush the material into small particles;
2. AC:N ratio of 25-30:1 is the best choice for efficient composting. The more diverse the materials that go into the pile, the better the chances of maintaining proper C:N ratios and efficient decomposition;
3. The optimum moisture content of compost raw materials is usually around 50%-60%; the pH value is controlled at 5.0-8.5;
4. Turning releases heat from the compost pile. While the material is actively decomposing, the temperature drops slightly during the flip and will return to its previous level within two to three hours. This is one of the strong advantages of composters.
