Technology for production of biological manure

      The raw material for production of biological manure is animal manure, such as cow, sheep, pig, horse and poultry manure.

      About 500 kg of manure are required to feed a plot of 1 sq. m. for a year. A bed 1 m. in width and any desired length is laid out. Stakes at a distance of 30 cm. between them are fixed. A plain wire on the stakes is stretched. A cloth of porous material, which leaks excess water during irrigation, is laid on the wire. The wire serves as a support of the cloth thrown over the wire.In this way the bed looks like a wash-tub.
