How Do You Get Successful In the Organic Fertilizer Industry?

The organic fertilizer market was worth over 8 billion in 2020. More and more people are interested in organic fertilizers because they want to get away from chemical fertilizers. However, it takes skill to make organic fertilizing to work because the soil has to be properly broken down to see results.

The industry is diverse, and it includes organic fertilizer. Organic fertilizer consists of plant-based (decomposed vegetables or plants) or animal-based materials (human excrement or other animal matter.) They are natural and do not consist of artificial materials.

Here’s how do you get successful in the organic fertilizer industry:

1. Study the business:

You can’t expect to win in the organic compost business plan if you don’t study the market and write a detailed business plan. What are existing businesses doing? What do you need to set up such a business? Are you able to run such a business without any toxic materials?

2. Your business needs to be located in a suitable place:

An organic fertilizers business plan should be located in the right place. Organic materials of this matter can give off a strong, offensive odor. Not only should you be able to deal with it, but you should have your business located far enough away from other homes and companies.

3. You need to have the correct startup costs:

As with most businesses, you must have the appropriate startup costs. To start a compost fertilizer manufacturing process, the minimum price is approximately $7,500. The maximum is about $60,000. To come to an average for startup costs, you’re looking at roughly $33,000.

4. Manure is your best bet:

Even though organic fertilizer can be made of other substances other than animal matter, manure is your best bet. It will allow for ongoing resources and better success. Composting hog manure is a good option. Cattle manure is also an option, but you have to ensure the nitrogen levels are correct.

5. The organic fertilizer industry is not heavily regulated:

The USDA does not regulate organic fertilizers. So even though a product may say “organic fertilizer,” that doesn’t mean it’s entirely organic. However, farms do receive stamps of approval from local organizations. So if you’re farm is genuinely not an organic fertilizer farm, not only will you not receive one of these certifications, but you could also be heavily fined. Some farms go for an OMRI (Organic Materials Review Institute) review. It is not a certification or a regulation, but it does provide some credibility for being an organic fertilizer distributor.

The most important things you can do to become successful in the organic fertilizer industry are to study the method to ferment manure for fertilizer and have the right location to start, have the money for your startup costs, ensure that your business is adhereing to what is genuinely an organic business, and to use the right fertilizer process technology. As with all businesses, it’s better to take the time to do it right than to rush into it.

Project details on organic fertilizer production
Because the new type of agitating toothed drum granulator is used in the organic fertilizer production line, NPK fertilizer granulation can also be carried out in the organic fertilizer production line. The new stirred drum pelletizing line is usually used to process different fermented organic matter into bio organic matter. Fertilizer. One step molding technology is adopted. The main raw materials of the fertilizer production line are animal manure and agricultural waste, which not only creates economic benefits for enterprises, but also makes great contributions to human environmental engineering.
Main equipment of organic fertilizer production line:

  1. Automatic batching system: the automatic batching system is mainly composed of feeding system, weighing device, silo and conveyor belt. The static batching system not only has the speed of Dynamic Batching, but also has the precision of ordinary static batching (0.2%).
  2. New type agitating toothed drum granulator: this series of granulator is a patent product newly developed by our company and Agricultural Machinery Research Institute. It is designed and manufactured by the process of new type wet continuous pusher.
  3. Dryer: This machine is a new generation rotary drum dryer developed by our company’s staff for many years in compound fertilizer production experience. The machine has the characteristics of beautiful appearance, simple operation, low energy consumption, long service life, uniform drying and convenient maintenance. It is China’s advanced compound fertilizer drying equipment, the product is widely used throughout the country.
  4. Rotary screen: this series of drum screen is a common equipment in the production of compound fertilizer. It is mainly used to separate the finished products from the returned materials, and also can realize the classification of products, so that the finished products can be evenly classified. The machine adopts combined screen, which is convenient for maintenance and replacement. It has the advantages of simple structure, convenient operation and stable operation. It is an ideal equipment for compound fertilizer production.
  5. Cyclone: cyclone is a kind of dust collector, which is mainly used for pre precipitation of high concentration dust and separation and recovery of materials. For the collection and separation of coarse particles above 5-10 um, the purification rate is high. The utility model has the advantages of simple structure, easy installation, maintenance and management, low cost and operation cost, and small floor area.
  6. Conveyor: the working principle of mobile lifting belt conveyor is the same as that of ordinary belt conveyor. It takes the belt as the continuous conveying equipment of the traction bearing machine. Compared with ordinary belt conveyor, mobile device and lifting device are added. With more lifting and moving devices, the mobile crane belt conveyor increases its excellent dynamic capability. It can be based on site conditions. It is equipped with forklifts and other powered locomotives to propel or pull goods to a suitable position for loading and unloading.
  7. Packaging machine: automatic packaging scale, also known as automatic packaging machine, can be divided into semi-automatic packaging scale and automatic packaging scale. The packing scale is mainly composed of automatic quantitative packing scale (composed of storage hopper, feeder, weighing and loading hopper, kneading mechanism, computer control, pneumatic actuator, etc.) and selection part (conveyor, sewing machine / heat sealing machine). Screw feeding is used, and the feeding mechanism forces the material to be discharged.
    raw material:
  8. Agricultural waste: rice straw, rice bran, etc
  9. Animal manure: chicken manure, pig manure, cow manure, sheep manure, etc
  10. Industrial waste: distiller’s grains, sugar dregs, etc.
  11. Domestic garbage: kitchen garbage, vegetable market garbage, slaughterhouse garbage, etc.
  12. Municipal sludge: river sludge, sewage sludge, etc.
    After safe treatment and fermentation, these raw materials are made into organic fertilizer. Therefore, organic fertilizers contain a variety of organic acids, peptides and rich nutrients, including nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. It not only provides comprehensive nutrition for crops, but also has long-term fertilizer. It can increase and renew soil organic matter, promote microbial reproduction, and improve soil physical and chemical properties and biological activity.
  13. The main raw materials of the production line are animal manure and agricultural waste. Not only can it be transformed into waste, but it can also protect the environment.
  14. Centralized control of the whole process of organic fertilizer production. The series is highly automated and easy to operate.
  15. The batching system and packing system are controlled by computer to ensure the accuracy of material batching and fertilizer packaging
  16. The product has high quality, stable performance, compact process layout, advanced technology and convenient maintenance
