Technological conditions of composting chicken poop into organic fertilizer.
With advanced mechanical technology, turning chicken manure into organic fertilizer is the main method to effectively treat chicken manure. And now, the common technology is aerobic fermentation. But when you adopt aerobic fermentation composting process to compost chicken poop, you require to meet the following technologic conditions.
- Suitable raw materials and auxiliary materials.
When you use chicken manure as raw material, you should make sure the suitable ratio of chicken manure and accessories is 3:1. In addition, you can use dry straw, corn stalk, fallen leaves, soybean stems and other organic matter as auxiliary materials to adjust C/ N.
- Suitable material humidity and fermentation temperature.
In addition to adjusting the C/N, you also need to ensure that the material has the right fermentation humidity. And the most suitable humidity for microbial fermentation is 50%-60%. If the humidity is too high, there is a higher chance of not fermenting.
In the chicken manure fermenting process, the fermention temperature will afect activity of bacteria. So you need control the right temprature. And in the actual production process, the fermentation temperature will be affected by the season to a certain extent. The summer temperature is high, in order to maintain a suitable temperature, the frequency of turning is relatively increased. However, the winter temperature is low, the frequency of turning will be reduced.
Sufficient oxygen is also necessary for the chicken manure fermentation. Because composting chicken poop process belongs to aerobic fermentation process, which requires sufficient oxygen. However, the air circulation in the chicken manure pile is slow, so we always use turning equipment to turn the chicken poop for sufficient oxygen.
