With the federal CAFO (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations) regulations now in effect, now would be the best time to think about turning manure into fertilizer granules. This will not only create a new source of income, but you will also be complying with the latest government rules.
The Wealth In Manure
While manure is often associated with a bad reputation due to the issues that it poses, many farm owners have now discovered that it also provides a solution. Granulating manure into dry fertilizer products alleviates many of the issues linked to manure, as well as taking advantage of the nutrient content in this waste. More importantly, fertilizer produced from manure contains high levels of micronutrients which are usually not present in inorganic-fertilizer com-pounds.
Granulation of manure (organic waste), into fertilizers can address a number of issues at once:
• Manure piles will not take up space in fields that are required or needed to grow food.
• The nutrient value in manure is no longer going to waste or damaging ecosystems and surrounding water sources.
• Soils can be replenished at appropriate and measurable rates.
The benefits achieved for the surrounding ecosystems and the soil, extend further by offering several advantages for the end-users, some of these include:
• The dry granules are a lot more cost-effective and easier to transport when compared to wet and raw manure.
• The heat from the dryers that are used in granulation processes removes harmful micro-organisms and pathogen, leaving behind nutritious and safe food for the soil and crops.
• The process of granulation reduces odors, which produces dry granules which are just about odor-free.
• The dry granules provide a premium, nutrient-rich product which is easy to sell for profits.
• The dry granules are easy to spread, and more compatible with machinery that is used for different types of agricultural applications.
Items To Consider For Turning Manure Into Fertilizer Granules
If you are interested in buying a plant to turn manure into fertilizer particle, the cost is usually the most important factor to keep in mind. However, there are a number of factors which will influence the overall price of setting up the plant. Here are a few considerations to keep in mind:
• The fertilizer quality. The high-quality fertilizers will require more machinery and processes. If you are looking to achieve a superior end product when it comes to the form, appearance, and quality of the fertilizer, you will need added auxiliary equipment during the production processes. This will mean that the overall costs will be relatively higher.
• Choosing the right machine. When it comes to production processes, there are various machines to choose from. This allows you to select the equipment and machinery within your budget.
Granulate fertilizer offers a cost-effective method to eliminate and recycle waste from animals. The profits that can be achieved from these processes are also highly favorable, meaning that the outlay is quickly recouped from the profits that you will make. To assess the costs of starting your own plant you can request a quote from the different manufacturers that sell these machines.
