In developing countries, fertilizer is one of the most expensive input in crop production. Bioslurry can be used to build healthy fertile soil for crop production.
The bioslurry can be used in liquid, compost, and dry form and is very good fertiliser, highly nutritious and ready for absorption by plants without ”burning the plants”.
Diluted 1:5 or 1:10, Bio-Slurry can be applied as a top dressing or sprayed as a folia feed. Sprayed on crops, it has also proven extremely effective to be an insect and pest repellent.
Bioslurry can increase cereal crop productions by 10 to 30%
compared to ordinary manure. Regarding increased yields, the most responsive crops to bioslurry are such as vegetables, root crops, potatoes, fruit trees, maize, and rice.
- Furthermore, bioslurry has the potential not only to improve soil fertility and soil structure, but also seeds treated with bioslurry have given better germination rates.
Bioslurry has many positive effects in addition to being a great source of nutrients, and it can be used for the following
- As a basal manure and as a foliar application or spray, or together with irrigation water.
- As an insect repellent.
- To increase soil fertility and improve the soil structure and water holding capacity.
- To decrease soil erosion.
- To treat seeds for higher germination, disease resistance, better yields, improved coloration of fruits and vegetables, and tenderness and taste of leafy vegetables.
- To increase the feed value of fodder with low protein content.
- For concentrated feed for cattle, pigs, and fish, and the
production of earth worms and algae.
- For the production of vitamin B12 and amino acids for animal
growth. In addition, it contains enzymes which stimulate
hunger for more food intake and better nourishment of
- As a means of increasing quality and quantity of organic
grown flowers and vegetables.
- To increase the availability of nutrients for soil micro-flora like
nitrogen fixing and phosphor solubilising organisms.
- To reduce the use of phosphate, a non-renewable source
which is being depleted globally.
- To reduce wastewater, water pollution, greenhouse gas
emissions and noxious odours.
- To reduce weed growth and to diminish attractiveness to
insects or flies.
