Poultry feather waste management and efects on plant growth

Purpose Poultry industries produce a lot of feathers which are considered as waste and needs to be managed properly. Poultry feathers are rich with keratin protein and therefore they could be a source for good nitrogen fertilizer. Proper treatment of poultry feather waste (PFW) might be an environmental friendly solid waste management tool and a […]

Organic manures: an efcient move towards maize grain biofortifcation

Purpose In a novel approach, certain organic wastes byproducts of agro industries were assessed for their ability to support maize growth and Zn bioavailability in maize grain. Methods In a feld experiment, maize (Zea mays) was supplemented with farm yard manure (FYM), press mud (PM), fsheries manure (FM), and slaughter house waste (SHW) in combination […]

Assessment and valorization of treated and non‑treated olive mill wastewater (OMW) in the dry region

Purpose The quantity of Olive by-products does not stop increasing and a water shortage that threatens the olive tree culture; require a serious valuation of these by-products. A comparative and valorization study of two kinds of OMW; Fresh OMW (FOMW), directly issue from three-phase continuous extraction factory and Disposal Evaporation Ponds OMW (DOMW) were done. […]

Loss of phosphorus by runof from soils after amendment with poultry litter co‑composted with crop waste

Purpose The study aimed to assess the infuence of poultry litter (PL) after co-composting with sugarcane and cabbage waste on phosphorus (P) losses in runof from soils under natural rainfall conditions. Methods Co-composted PL was amended in silt loam and sandy clay soils. The soil applied with PL without agro-waste was considered as control treatment. […]

An environmental evaluation of food waste downstream management options: a hybrid LCA approach

Purpose Food waste treatment methods have been typically analysed using current energy generation conditions. To correctly evaluate treatment methods, they must be compared under existing and potential decarbonisation scenarios. This paper holistically quantifes the environmental impacts of three food waste downstream management options—incineration, composting, and anaerobic digestion (AD). Methods The assessment was carried out using […]

Efect of bagasse ash and flter cake amendments on wheat (Triticum turgidum L.var. durum) yield and yield components in nitisol

Purpose This experiment was initiated to evaluate the efect of flter cake and bagasse ash on the productivity of wheat under greenhouse conditions. Methods Six levels of flter cake and bagasse ash each separately and control check were arranged in a completely randomized design with three replications. Results At 100 tons/ha, both inputs resulted in the […]

Biochemical, physiological, and yield responses of lady’s fnger (Abelmoschus esculentus L.) grown on varying ratios of municipal solid waste vermicompost

Purpose In the present study, efect of earthworm-processed MSW was seen on biochemical, physiological, and yield responses of Abelmoschus esculentus L. Methods Plants were grown on diferent amendment ratios of municipal solid waste vermicompost (MSWVC). Pot experiments were conducted by mixing MSWVC at 0, 20, 40, 60, 80, and 100% ratios to the agricultural soil. […]

Kinetics of potassium release and fxation in some soils of Ogun State, Southwestern, Nigeria as infuenced by organic manure

Purpose The study investigated the efects of poultry and goat manures on the kinetics of potassium fxation and release in some sandy loam and loamy soils of Ogun State, Nigeria. Methods The treatments consisted of poultry and goat manures applied at 25 g and 100 g/5 kg soil set in completely randomized design with three replicates. Potassium fxation […]

Composting of chicken manure with a mixture of sawdust and wood shavings under forced aeration in a closed reactor system

Purpose This study aimed to achieve successful composting and aeration rate and to optimize the carbon:nitrogen (C:N) ratio to provide favourable conditions for the process. In the current experiment, investigation were made on variations in physico–chemical properties, i.e., temperature, ammonia and carbon dioxide emissions, pH, electrical conductivity (EC), organic matter (OM) and seed germination index […]
