AGRIBUSINESS DEVELOPS ORGANIC FERTILISER

 

Agribusiness Körös-Maros Biofarm has developed a slow-release organic fertiliser in a three-year project involving the experts of the Biological Research Centre, Szeged, and fertiliser company Agrogeo. The 135 million forint project was supported by 76 million in EU funding, managing director Zsolt Raki told MTI. The compound involves breaking down manure and crop residue into dry and fluid components, producing granules and coating them with natural biopolymers. Commercial sales of the fertiliser will start in shops in Békés County in February and annual production is expected to reach 1,000-2,000 tonnes.
