SAREMCO Organic Fertilizer / Compost Production

Though agricultural revolution has led to unbelievable yields and crop productions but the means which have derived all these increments seem to hamper the fertility of soil.
The harsh chemicals have started registering their harmful side effects on the soils. Today what each farmer is looking forward to is a proper solution to the agricultural problems without compromising on the yields.

It is a universally acknowledged fact that organic fertilization methods are more environmental friendly and fetch slower but steady results. Today when the world is advancing so fast in every aspect, how can the life supporting area can be ignored? Today the use of fertilizers is one of the greatest innovations of the agricultural revolution. Depending upon importance of Organic Fertilizer, SAREMCO produces Organic Waste Compost Fertilizer.

What is Organic Fertilizer?
Organic fertilizers are naturally occurring fertilizers and nutrient enhancers of the soil. Therefore every substance that occurs naturally and is easily bio-degradable is organic and if this organic material enhances the richness of the soil, it is termed as organic fertilizer.

Manure: The organic waste of animals is termed as manure when it gets decomposed by the ongoing process of bacteria and fungi. this decomposed matter called manure is then used in agriculture to enhance and promote productivity of soil and thus revolutionize the yields.

Slurry waste: Scientifically it is a thick blend of solids in any liquid and when talking about agricultural slurry it has to be any house or animal waste material well blended with water to inculcate soil fertility. It is prepared through a long term process of collecting the waste material in a huge container or tanks and then transported to the agricultural fields in the similar liquid form. It is in liquid form, therefore it gets dissolved easily and mixes well with the soil which leads to nutrition of soil.

Worm Castings: It is also referred to as by different names such as vermicompost, worm compost, worm humus, etc. It is the end product of anything that is resulted after the break-down of any organic material or waste by the worms, insects or earthworms. It is highly rich in nutrients and proves to be a worthy soil conditioner.

Manufactured organic fertilizers

The fertilizers which are manufactured by decomposition of natural waste material are termed as manufactured organic fertilizers. Compost, blood meal, bone meal and sea weed extracts.

Compost: Also called as Brown manure, it is the end product of the decomposition of the organically waste material. It is a process which is carried on by numerous bacteria, fungi and other little organisms. Used in landscaping, horticulture, and to prevent soil erosion, compost is an effective solution to soil troubles.

Soil nourishes plants and thus mankind. While transforming dead into living, soil loses its original fertility and nutrients and it becomes necessary for us to manure and fertilize the soil in an effective manner. Compost is one easy way to replenish the soil and bring it to life again.

An Introductory Fact File
Compost constitutes of biologically decomposed remains of organic matter and is also known as brown manure. It is not a newly introduced phenomenon as ancient civilizations had a clear idea of composting and they had tried their hands on it as well. It’s easy to understand the know how of composting and other aspects of it from the beginning to end and this easy approach towards it has made it such a welcomed idea by all. Composting not only helps the soil nourishment but also brings in great profits and yields of crops.

The activity of numerous tiny organisms that need carbon for energy and nitrogen for growth and reproduction. As the different organisms undergo different organic activity, most of the digestible material is consumed and transformed, resulting in the nourishment of the soil. Compost is an outstanding and valuable source of organic matter for almost any gardener.

What is composting?

The phenomenon of transformation of organic plant or waste matter through decomposition into a soil like matter is known as composting.
Composting is worked out by numerous insects and earthworms along with micro organisms such as bacteria and fungi. These little organisms convert the solid waster material in broken and recycled form. And this phenomenon is an ever going process which is unstoppable and continuous in nature.

An excellent way to get rid of bio- degradable organic material and at the same time utilize it in some other transformed state. This also helps in avoiding chemical and other natural resources from being wasted. This process has been appreciated since ages due to its unlimited benefits and advantages. Our ancestors had foreseen the uses of composting earlier and that is the reason why they promoted every aspect of composting

Composting acts as a soil nutrient and fertilizer and therefore finds extensive opportunities in landscaping, horticulture and agricultural processes. Not only this it also helps in controlling soil erosion, wetland construction, landfill cover, etc

Today the prime concern is to dispose the waste material in an appropriate form. Lack of land to be used as landfill further commensurate the need of an alternative which will help us all in the long run.

Decomposition is an ongoing process which helps in doing away with the bio-degradable waste material and this natural process has been going on for ages. However this makes one ponder that as many other natural processes why can’t we modify it in our ways. This decomposition can be turned into well guided composting and various oriental methods have been taken account of by the scientists and nature preservers.

What turns into compost?
Every waste material is pushed into the landfills for decomposition, where it rots down into minimal organic matter as micro organisms and insects work on it. However if this bio-degradable waste is divided into multiple forms according to their decomposing strength and time then it can be turned into a good composted waste. Biodegradable waste, coffee grounds, cocoa shell, green waste, Human waste, leaf mold, manure, spent mushroom compost, tree bark, brown waste, fruits and vegetables, etc. constitutes compostable material.
