Making Liquid Fertilizer – Nutricycling Follow us at: www.facebook.com/bioponica www.instagram.com/bioponica www.bioponica.net This process is a dual-phase extraction and biofiltration technique used for making liquid fertilizer from organic biomass. Bioponica has used this method over the past 5 years for creating plant fertility in soilless grow systems. It works very well. This is not a compost tea. We are using non-digested, non-animal waste, nutrient rich biomass that is abundantly available worldwide. Nutricycling presents an extremely important opportunity for growers worldwide that otherwise rely on dry windrow composting to nourish organic farms or chemical fertilizers for non-organic growing. All biomass has nutritional value; how it is prepared for use is what makes this a unique opportunity. Unlike composting which takes 2-4 months to decompose, nutricycling extracts the nutrients within 5-10 days total. And it requires little effort to transfer to the plants, as it is contained entirely within the water used for hydrating or ‘fertigating.’ Low labor, low cost and much more efficient at capturing nutrients than dry composting. When submerged into water under anaerobic conditions (phase 1), biomass quickly decomposes with the aid of microorganisms – anaerobes, thermophiles and acidophiles. All participate in the breakdown of solids and within water these become a “leachate” which may then be used for further biofiltration and decomposition. Biofiltration bags are added in this Phase as they increase microbe surface area for greater colonization and activity. After 4-5 days of extraction, this liquid is transferred into an aerobic tank (phase 2) that decarbonizes the leachate, which puts it into a more plant-ready form that may be used in hydroponic, aquaponic and bioponic settings. Soil growers do not necessarily have to decarbonize, as the added microbe carbon-nourishment can be better handled in the soil. Bioponica has developed and refined this process and named it ‘nutricycling.’ While […]
