One of the main reasons organic farmers continue to turn towards chicken manure is due to the essential plant nutrients it offers. Pelleted poultry manure gives farmers an easy to handle product that includes Nitrogren (100 lbs per ton), Phosphorus (82 lbs per ton), Potassium (53 lbs per ton), Calcium (140 lbs per ton), Magnesium, Sulfur (8-10 lbs per ton), Manganese, Copper, Zinc, Cholorine, Boron, Iron, and Molybdenum.
These include all 13 of the essential plant nutrients that plants use. Poultry manure can provide a portion, or all of the requirements necessary (depending on how much chicken manure pellets are applied).
These valuable plant nutrients come from everything the chickens consume and the final product is approved for organic use.
