Collect chicken manure: When cleaning the chicken house, collect chicken manure in a centralized manner. Choose fresh chicken manure to avoid carrying too many impurities.

Adding auxiliary materials: To improve the effect of chicken manure fermentation, it is usually necessary to add some auxiliary materials, such as straw, sawdust, straw, and other high-carbon substances. This helps maintain a proper carbon-to-nitrogen ratio and provides a better fermentation environment.

Adjust Moisture Content: Chicken manure fermentation requires moderate humidity. If the chicken manure is too dry, add an appropriate amount of water; if it is too wet, add some dry materials. It is ideal to control the humidity at around 50% to 60%.

Choose a Fermentation Site: Mix the chicken manure and auxiliary materials evenly and stack them in an appropriate place. The stacking method can be stack composting or trough composting to ensure adequate ventilation and airflow.

Choosing the right fermentation method is crucial. Depending on the size of your factory, if it is a small factory, you can choose natural fermentation or a compost turner. If it is a medium or large factory, you can choose our company’s most advanced fermentation equipment – an organic fertilizer fermentation tank. The equipment is a sealed structure and equipped with a deodorizing system. The fermentation time only takes 7 days, and it is produced in batches. This saves labor greatly.

After the crushing stage, the finely ground chicken manure is mixed through an organic fertilizer mixer. At this stage, the pulverized chicken manure is mixed with other organic or inorganic ingredients to form a balanced and nutrient-rich fertilizer mixture. The mixing process ensures an even distribution of nutrients and prevents uneven fertilizer application. This homogeneity is essential to promote continued plant growth and maximize nutrient uptake.

The combination of crushing and mixing contributes to the overall effectiveness of chicken manure organic fertilizer. By breaking down the material into smaller particles and forming a well-mixed fertilizer mixture, organic fertilizers become more easily absorbed by plants, promoting healthy growth and improving soil fertility.

Organic fertilizer granulation is a key step in the entire chicken manure organic fertilizer production line. Four types of organic fertilizer granulators are provided according to customer needs:

Rotary Drum Granulator: The chicken manure mixture is fed into the rotating disk granulator. The rotating disk inside the machine causes the chicken manure particles to form spherical particles under the action of humidity and pressure. The particles gradually increase in size during the high-speed rotation of the disk and eventually become uniform particles.

Disc Granulator: The chicken manure mixture is moistened through the spray system, and then through the rotating motion of the disc granulator, the granules are formed under the action of moisture and pressure. Particle size can be controlled by adjusting the tilt angle and rotation speed of the disc.


Flat Die Pellet Mill: The chicken manure mixture is fed into the flat die pellet mill through a hopper. Die plates within the machine squeeze the material into pellets. This equipment is suitable for small-scale production.

Next is the process of drying, cooling, screening, and packaging of chicken manure organic fertilizer.

Drying (Rotary Drum Dryer): First, the mixed chicken manure organic fertilizer particles enter the rotating disc dryer. The rotating disc inside the machine quickly rotates the particles in a high-temperature environment and dries them through hot air. This helps remove excess moisture from the pellets, improving the quality and shelf life of the fertilizer.

Cooling (Rotary Drum Cooler): The dried organic fertilizer particles pass through a rotating disc cooler. This step is designed to cool the particles to room temperature. The cooling process helps avoid clumping of the pellets due to heat before packaging, ensuring stable pellet shape and quality.


Screening (Rotary Drum Screener): The cooled organic fertilizer particles pass through the rotating disc screener. This step is used to remove excessively large or small particles in the particles to ensure the uniformity and uniformity of the final packaged organic fertilizer particles. consistency.

Packaging (Fertilizer Packing Machine): The screened organic fertilizer particles enter the fertilizer packaging machine, and the machine will pack the organic fertilizer particles into bags according to the preset weight or volume. This helps facilitate transportation, storage, and use while ensuring the nutrient content and quality of each bag of fertilizer.

Through this series of process steps, from drying to packaging, the quality and stability of the chicken manure organic fertilizer particles during the production process are ensured, providing reliable quality assurance for its application in the agricultural field.

Quality testing and evaluation of chicken manure organic fertilizer

In the production of chicken manure organic fertilizer, quality testing is crucial to ensure the product meets standards and provides effective nutrients for agriculture. Nutrient content testing is key to evaluating the fertilizer, measuring nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and other nutrients to provide a scientific basis for application. Organic matter content detection reflects richness in organic matter, significant for soil improvement. Microbial testing evaluates microorganisms in the fertilizer, directly impacting the soil ecosystem. Product quality evaluation adheres to national standards, considering nutrient content, organic matter, and microbial status to ensure compliance with sustainable agriculture requirements. This testing ensures a scientific foundation for rational application and optimal effectiveness in farmland.
