Organic fertilizer with pig excrement
As a first option we have the organic fertilizer with pig excrement, also known as pig manure.
The process of composting the pig excrement to be turned into fertilizer can take about 3 months and even a little more.
Processes must be carried out such as turning the excrement, carrying out good storage, having good aeration and adding other elements such as rock flour, cacota, other plant resources, among other things.
To have good results it is very important to have good conditions in the environment where it is located.
Factors such as the temperature of the fertilizer, the pH and many other characteristics are a guarantee that the final product will be as expected.
Definitely, organic pig manure is a very good option since, in addition to being excellent for plants, it also helps to reduce a little the impact that excrement can have on the environment.
Organic fertilizer based on fish waste
An ingredient of animal origin that many of you probably did not think could make an excellent organic fertilizer is fish waste. How can you prepare? Experts mainly recommend two ways of preparation and application: emulsion or flour.
One of the great advantages that organic fertilizer based on fish waste can have is that its preparation is not as complicated as it might seem, we just need fish leftovers, a little natural waste (dry leaves, sawdust, among other things) , paper and molasses.
It is recommended to prepare the fertilizer in a container with a very good lid, first pour the fish waste, then the organic waste (they give the fertilizer air), the paper and finally the molasses.
It is good to mix (by shaking the container) the content after closing the container.
We recommend opening the container daily to let the gases out and to shake the contents a little. It is key that it does not have contact with sunlight.
When can we use the emulsion?
After about two weeks, they should use a 1:4 ratio, that is, add 4 liters of water to 1 liter of emulsion to be used in their plantation.
Organic fertilizer with eggshells
There are different forms and types of organic fertilizers with eggshells.
We will mention how to make organic compost with eggshells in two of the simplest and most common, but effective ways: eggshell tea and eggshell powder.
How to make eggshell tea?
The first thing they should do is let the eggshells dry in the sun for a certain time (it doesn’t have to be more than 6 hours).
By having the shells dry, you simply have to prepare the tea, for this, it is recommended to take the shells of about 8 eggs and boil them in two liters of water.
By cooling our tea we can water the plants with it.
How to make eggshell powder?
This preparation is even simpler, we simply have to let the shells dry very, very well and then they are crushed until they get a powder.
The powder can be applied directly, with a little coffee, diluted in water, it can be left in water for 15 days until it ferments and we can even create a kind of fertilizer with this powder (mixing with coffee, moist soil and other organic resources that have within reach, such as, for example, dry leaves, fruit leftovers, planting leftovers, among other things).
Guano organic fertilizer
The main ingredient of guano is the excrement of seabirds and also of seals and bats, and it is used as a totally organic and natural fertilizer.
One of the advantages of guano organic fertilizer is that it can provide the plants and the soil with a large amount of nutrients necessary for their proper growth.
In addition, thanks to its properties, it has the ability to fight against some pests that can appear in crops.
It is also relevant to mention about this fertilizer that the earth has the ability to absorb it quickly and that it helps retain water in the soil (a very important component for plants).
One of the great disadvantages of guano is that it is not as easy as it seems to obtain its main ingredient (seabird droppings), therefore, despite being so good and effective, it usually creates some problems when it comes to preparing it.
Organic fertilizer based on chicken droppings (chicken manure)
Who has not heard about chicken manure or organic fertilizer based on chicken droppings?
Clearly this is one of the most sought-after fertilizers on the market due to its high effectiveness in plantations (it is said that it can even be up to 2 or 4 times better than cattle manure fertilizer).
Of course, in the production of this fertilizer there are some very important secrets, for example, for the fertilizer to be much more effective, the control of the feeding of the hens must be very demanding, in addition, it is recommended that it dry completely in the shade.
Organic fertilizer based on cattle manure
The organic fertilizer based on cattle manure is in general the oldest and most used on the market since its main ingredient is perhaps the easiest to find.
One of the great advantages of this type of fertilizer is that it provides a very good amount of nitrogen to the soil and that its preparation is quite simple.
