What is the analysis of pelleted chicken manure?

Chicken manure pellets are derived from raw chicken manure, enabling condensed nutrients that farmers use on their organic ground. By pelletizing the manure, we’re able to offer value to farmers by bringing more nutrients in smaller loads, over a longer distance.

In addition to condensed nutrients, pellets are incredibly easy to handle and store, making them a viable fertility option for operations of just about any size.

A typical chicken manure pellets analysis 

Pelletized chicken manure typically falls in the 4-5% (per ton) Nitrogen range, the 3-4% Phosphorus (per ton) range, and roughly 2-3% (again, per ton) Potassium range. During winter months, especially in northern climates, the NP and K values of chicken manure may fall, as reducing the moisture content in the manure is a big more challenging.

How much is 5% Nitrogen?

When reading a typical analysis, you’ll see numbers like: 5-4-2. This means, that in one ton of manure, we have 5% Nitrogen (N), 4% Phosphorus (P) and 2% Potassium (K).

5% Nitrogen would equal 100lbs. per ton. Following suit, 4% P is equal to 80lbs. per ton and 2% K sorts out to 40lbs per ton.

What’s the 1st year availability of nutrients in chicken manure pellets? 

The first year availability is roughly 70%. Take this into consideration when calculating exactly how many tons of manure pellets you’ll need to grow crops.
