A recent article by the ABC showcases the increase in ginger production from a trial of composted poultry manure pellets. The trial saw production almost double in a test plot comparing compost, poultry manure pellets and raw poultry litter. The research highlights the fact that raw manure may be a cheaper option but the risks to food safety make poultry manure pellets the product of choice.
Composted poultry manure pellets like Katek Super Booster and Katek Super Growth are composted at high temperatures, which kills off pests, pathogens and weed seeds.
Just a few of the improvements to soil health from using poultry manure pellets:
- suppressing disease
- increasing organic matter and
- slow release of nutrients as the pellet breaks down
With pelletised chicken manure products you can include a range of trace elements in the pellet, helping to correct deficiencies in the soil. Katek’s Super Growth Fertiliser has a range of added ingredients to promote strong plant growth and improve soil condition.
