High-Quality Orchard Fertilizer – Farm Manure

Which manure is more suitable for applying to orchards, such as cow manure, sheep manure, chicken manure, or pig manure? 
Cow manure, sheep manure, chicken manure, and pig manure. In terms of fertility, chicken manure, and pig manure are more abundant, and chicken manure and pig manure are more suitable for application in orchards. However, no matter which type of manure is applied to orchards, it must be fermented and matured before it can be used. 

What should be paid attention to when applying animal manure to orchards? 

  • To fully ferment and decompose. 
    Uncooked manure, especially poultry manure, has heavy salt content, which can easily salinize Soil salinity, increase soil salt concentration, and also produce harmful gases and poison plants. In addition, livestock manure can contain many bacteria, insect eggs, weed seeds, etc. If not fermented at high temperatures, it is easy to have adverse effects, leading to the occurrence of diseases and pests.  
  • Apply fertilizer using the ditch fertilization method. 
    When using animal manure to fertilize orchards, furrow fertilization can be used. Do not let the manure be too close to the root system of the fruit tree, which can easily affect the root system. Usually, fertilizer is applied between two fruit trees, and it should not be too close to the trunk of the fruit tree. It can be applied at the projection of the crown of the fruit tree. Maintaining a depth of around 50 centimeters is the most appropriate. As for the amount of fertilizer to be applied to each fruit tree, it can be determined based on the specific size of the fruit tree, usually around 35 kilograms per tree. 
  • Pay attention to the timing of fertilization. 
    Usually, after fruit picking, it can be used as the autumn and winter base fertilizer for the fruit tree, which can help the tree recover better in the same year and also facilitate the growth of the fruit in the following year. After all, this type of fertilizer takes a relatively slow time to take effect after application, often resulting in a longer process.  

How to identify whether manure is completely decomposed?  

  • The Organic fertilizer that is only dried by purely physical methods still retains the color of the original feces, but the water content is reduced. It is treated by composting technology, especially after high-quality fermentation aids, such as fermentation aids, and Organic fertilizer after fermentation and decomposition, the color of the finished product should be brown or black brown, and there are no other impurities in the finished product.  
  • High-quality Organic fertilizer can be grasped by the hand, with a consistent hand feel, soft and elastic when wet, brittle when dry, and easily broken, while low-quality Organic fertilizer can touch the sand and other impurities by hand. It can also be judged by using water bubbles. Soak the two kinds of high-quality and low-quality Manure in clean water. After a few minutes, it can be seen that high-quality Organic fertilizer is evenly distributed in the water, while low-quality Manure will sink a lot of sand or soil at the bottom of the container, which is obviously different.  
  • Whether it’s straw compost or various feces, take out 500 grams and seal them in a bag for three days. If the bag expands and there is more air inside, it indicates that it has not fully decomposed. If the bag has not expanded, it can basically be said that it has fully decomposed. Because during the process of straw manure decomposition, gas is produced.  
    However, for those who use urban sludge to make Manure, this method cannot be tested. This method can also detect whether our seedling substrate is fully decomposed.

For small and medium-sized farms, the manual dewatering machine is a very good piece of equipment. It can efficiently squeeze fecal water into dry feces, facilitating subsequent processing.
