When you plan to produce organic fertilizer or make compound fertilizer, it is necessary to pay attention to materials choosing. It is not only related to fertilizer machine selection but also to fertilizer making business plan design.  However, what material can be used in organic & compound fertilizer production? You can find the answer from this post.

What inputs can you add in organic fertilizer production?

With the development of organic fertilizer demand, more and more businesses plan to invest in organic fertilizer production. But before starting the preparation of organic fertilizer, you must know what material can be used in this process. Generally, the materials for organic fertilizer manufacturing contain the following types:

Animal manure

In organic fertilizer making process, animal manure is the most commonly used material. There are two reasons. For one thing, animal manure is usually rich in N, P, K, etc nutrients, which play an important role in crop growth. For another, poultry and livestock breeding is booming all around the world. So there is a large amount animal manure waits to dispose of. Including cow dung, chicken poop, pig waste, goat manure, horse manure, etc.

Industrial waste for organic fertilizer making

Industrial waste

Besides animal manure, there are much industrial waste that also contains rich nutrients. Such as bagasse, wine waste, cassava residues, etc. So you also can use them as input for quality organic fertilizer production.

Agricultural litter

Can we use agricultural litter in organic fertilizer making? Such as straw, sawdust, mushroom waste, soya bean residues, etc. Of course. It is a kind of ideal auxiliary material, which can help you prepare quality organic fertilizer more smoothly. On the one hand, agricultural waste contains rich nitrogen elements. So it is an excellent choice fro adjusting C/N ratio of organic fertilizer making. On the other hand, its moisture content is low. Therefore, you can use it to reduce the high water content of manure and industrial waste.

Other organic waste

In addition, you also can make organic fertilizer from many other materials. Including biogas residue, bentonite, etc. Moreover, if you want to further enrich the nutrients in organic fertilizer making process, you also can add micronutrients like zinc, iron, manganese, etc.

How to choose materials for compound fertilizer manufacturing?

In general, the final purpose for compound fertilizer making is supplying nutrients to crops and plants in a targeted way. Then because the most important elements for the growth of crops and plants are nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. So the material for compound fertilizer production at least contains two or more nutrients in nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. Then what material contains those elements?


If you want to promote the growth of branches and leaves, we recommend you make compound fertilizer with rich nitrogen elements. Because it can improve the ability of plants to absorb nutrients. At that time, it is advisable to use urea, ammonium chloride, ammonium sulfate, ammonium nitrate and calcium nitrate, etc as materials.

Phosphate chemical material as fertilizer


But when you want to improve the ability of plants in blooming and fruiting. You need to increase the phosphate content when preparing compound fertilizer. The most excellent materials for you are monoammonium phosphate (MAP), diammonium phosphate (DAP), triple superphosphate (TSP) and superphosphate (SSP), etc.


Finally, if you focus more on promoting the development of rhizomes and improving the ability of crops to adapt to temperature changes and resist pests and diseases. Potassium chloride (MOP), potassium sulfate (SOP), potassium carbonate and plant ash, etc are ideal materials for the production of complex fertilizer. Because they can offer rich potassium nutrient to NPK compound fertilizer production.
