Composting

The value of agricultural waste and by-products is increasingly being realized through the introduction of technologies to convert these into value added products. Composting waste such as empty fruit bunches (EFB) from the palm oil mill is a proven solution that can deliver cost savings through the replacement of inorganic fertilizers while reducing carbon emissions through the utilization of mill effluent (pome).
 
The composting process for EFB involves the creation of windrows that allow for oxygen penetration throughout the 40-90 day composting cycle. By regularly turning the EFB in set intervals, the carbon-based woody material in the EFB is converted to carbon dioxide and water vapor through microbial reactions with oxygen.
 
What is left is a high-quality, easy-to-apply, nutrient rich compost that has been proven to be able to replace up to 40% of a plantation’s inorganic fertilizer needs.

 Why Compost / Soil Conditioners ?
  • Contains beneficial micro-organisms
  • Green Organic raw material from oil palm waste and beneficial microbial formulations
  • More efficient nutrient transfer from fertilizer to plant, reducing nutrient loss through leaching
  • Continuous usage increases soil pH
  • Long lasting effectiveness up to 20 weeks
  • Increases fertilizer efficiency, reduces cost, enhance fertilizer quality, increase fertility and reduces leaching
  • Improves soil physical characteristics, eliminates the remains of agro-chemicals
  • Improves crop physical characteristics
