Avicultura Industrial – The first organ mineral biofertilizer phosphate and granulated produced within the project FertBrasil Network, will be presented in May for Brazilian producers. Embrapa Soils, who coordinates the project, developed the product from the compost waste from poultry litter. The technological solution is an alternative for fertilizers, but also a means of reusing waste animal and vegetable origin. The project coordinator, the researcher from Embrapa Soils Vinicius Benites, says the lab and field evaluations are ready, allowing the technology to be transferred. “The South in general has the potential to produce fertilizer for having large production of poultry and pigs.”
The compound is the result of a mixture of minerals with organic matter that allows the plant better assimilates nutrients, prevent soil contamination and water excess chemical elements and restore the vital conditions of the soil. Besides this, Benites said 22 other technologies are in progress, being analyzed in the laboratory. The results begin to appear four years after the beginning of the network, which was established in 2008 as a result of the international economic crisis fertilizer prices soared. “We decided to develop fertilizers in Brazil we need to end dependence on the outside.” The research seeks best practices for improved efficiency, management and implementation, identification of nutrient sources, and technologies to improve fertilizer.
