What Is Organic Chicken Manure?

Organic Chicken Manure is an organic fertilizer containing probiotics that makes the soil more porous, providing a good effect when treating degraded soil due to long-term use of chemical fertilizers. This is the most efficient use currently available, by providing beneficial soil microorganisms.


Nutritional Composition Of Chicken Manure

Chicken manure contains many useful nutrients for plants, in addition to high organic content and beneficial soil microorganisms to help increase soil fertility, improve soil, reduce salinity, reduce acidity and retain moisture well. It also contains outstanding levels of N – P – K. Especially, chicken manure is rich in potassium and minerals, so it is very good to use for fruit trees.

Content of N – P – K in chicken manure:

% Nito % Photpho % Kali
Fresh chicken poop 0,9 0,5 0,5
Dried chicken manure 1,6 1,8 2,0

Effects of Organic Chicken Manure

For land:

  • Help the soil more porous, reduce salinity, reduce acidity.
  • Increases the growth of beneficial microflora.

For plants:

  • Provides high organic content.
  • Help seeds germinate quickly, take root quickly, seedlings thrive.
  • Increase the flavor of fruits and vegetables.
  • Increase plant resistance. Reduces leaf curl, wilt and yellowing diseases. Helps increase pollen absorption, plant hardening and seed firmness.
  • Limiting root droop, root swelling, root neck erosion and rapid regeneration.
  • Create favorable conditions for plants to absorb inorganic substances.
  • Used for top dressing and priming to provide easy-to-digest nutrients for plants to absorb, help seeds germinate quickly, take root quickly, seedlings grow strong and fast.
  • Increase the taste and smell of fruits and vegetables.
  • Reduce diseases: leaf twisting, budding, leaf yellowing, help increase pollination, plant hardiness, seed firmness.
  • Improves grain quality at harvest.
  • Limit on larvae, increase development of beneficial microflora.
  • Limit root rot, root swelling, miss root neck and fast root regeneration.
  • Limit the phenomenon of flat seeds and jagged teeth.
  • Limit the phenomenon of 1 kernel on coffee plants.
  • Increase resistance for plants from the inside.
  • Improve physical and chemical properties, increase soil fertility, improve and retain moisture, reduce salinity, reduce soil acidity.
  • Provide soil with beneficial microorganisms such as phosphorus, fiber, nitrogen fixation, photonutrients, etc.

How to Use Chicken Manure

  • Fertilize before sowing seeds or planting new: spread evenly on the field according to beds, trenches, pits, use rake to mix fertilizer with topsoil before sowing.
  • Fertilizer: Mix chicken manure with clean soil. The ratio 2/8 is used as a growing medium.

Pros and Cons of Chicken Manure

Advantages of Chicken Manure

  • Chicken manure not only contains high organic content, but it also contains higher levels of N-P-K than goat manure, cattle manure, vermicompost, etc.
  • Especially, chicken manure is rich in potassium and minerals, so it is very good to use for fruit trees. Therefore, chicken manure is considered a higher quality manure than other types of manure

Cons of Chicken Manure

  • Yellowing leaves, difficult to absorb: Chicken manure is the hottest manure, so if it is not composted, it will harm plants. Harm can be the rapid yellowing of the leaves, the nutrients in chicken manure are difficult to absorb.
  • Cause plant diseases: because chicken manure contains pathogenic fungi and nematodes, if not handled properly, it will cause many diseases for plants.
  • Destroy the roots of the plant: The first part that can be most affected by pathogens in chicken manure is the roots. Nematodes, harmful microorganisms, fungi, etc., if not handled thoroughly, will attack and cling to the roots, multiply and thrive. Then quickly destroy the roots, causing the plant to die.
