Natural Fertilisers

For the first time in the world, Camson has introduced a natural replacement for chemical NPK.

Camson has introduced the world’s first Natural Fertilizers. These are obtained through microbial sources combined with advanced fermenter based technology. The company has the capability to extract N.P & K individually from consortium of microbes and package them in any variant as per requirement. The patent application for the same has already been accepted. The company aims to replace the chemical fertilizers completely with Natural Fertilizers. These Natural Fertilizers have been tested in various labs across India and abroad and have found to conform on the claimed values. Further, field tests have been done at various Government Institutions of repute and also by third parties which stands as positive testimony on the efficacy front for Natural Fertilizers. It has the capability to improve soil biological properties since it has higher organic carbon content. It restores natural soil fertility & stimulates plant growth which boosts yields and is recommended for all crops.

Advantages of using Natural Fertilizers:

  1. NPK is in natural and biologically available form which makes it easier for the plants to absorb them in entirety without any losses happening via leaching, evaporation, volatilization, etc. Hence, it has high Fertilizer Use Efficiency (FUE).
  2. It contains organic carbon which helps to build up the beneficial microbial population in the soil. This leads to incremental yield benefits over a period of application.
  3. It is free from heavy metals and is completely organic; thus, does not harm the soil, end produce and ecosystem.
  4. It is suitable for all forms of farming systems including hydroponics, green house cultivation, vertical farming, etc.

SOURCE

Derived from chemical raw material: Natural Gas, Ammonia, Rock Phosphate and Mineral Acids

Also, the source of raw materials is restricted to few countries on the globe making it a costly and riskier proposition.

Derived from microbes as extracts (=Secondary Metabolites) by a unique process technology which harnesses the naturally available elements and make them available in readily bio-available forms.

NATURE

Chemical in origin. Salt-Based.

Natural and ORGANIC*. Microbial Extract-Based.

POLLUTION and OTHER POTENTIAL HAZARDS

a) During Manufacturing Process: Creates immense pollution with harmful gases like CO2, Methane and Nitrous Oxide being released in Atmosphere leading to degradation of environment and human health.

b) On Application: Being a salt based product, on repeated application impact the soil pH and ecosystem which in turn impact the germination, growth and quality of end produce. Higher MRL levels in end produce leads to rejection of export consignments.

a) Non-Polluting. The manufacturing process involves extraction, fermentation and formulations which has no negative connotation for environment and human health.

b) On Application: Being a natural product derived microbial, has no deleterious effect on the soil, crop, micro flora and end produce. Can be safely used for INTEGRATED NUTRIENT MANAGEMENT PROGRAMMES, ORGANIC FARMING, PRECISION FARMING, and ZERO RESIDUE FARMING and for EXPORT ORIENTED FARMING SYSTEMS.

FERTILIZER USE EFFICIENCY (FUE)

Most of the nutrients get lost by Leaching, Volatilization, Immobilization, Fixation in Soil, De-nitrification, etc. and hence the FUE is low.

Nutrients are present in bio-available form which minimizes the losses and increases the nutrient availability to the plant/crops. Hence, the FUE is on higher side.

SOIL MICRO-FLORA

The beneficial microbial population and organic matter content in soil gets negatively impacted with repeated applications.

The beneficial microbial population is highly enhanced** leading to LIVING soil and better organic matter content. It is having high Organic Carbon Content.

IMPACT ON PEST-DISEASE COMPLEX

Nutrients are almost immediately released after application and hence lead to increase in pest and disease incidence.

No such case here, in fact, it ensures healthy plant/crop and thus minimizes the chances of pest and disease incidence.

FINANCIAL ENCUMBRANCE

Heavy imports of raw materials put financial pressure on the ex-chequer. Also, the demand-supply gap is hardly bridged. The CAPEX requirement is huge for setting up the manufacturing unit.

Derived from natural process; formulation time and technology is easy and feasible. Demand can be met. As such, can save valuable foreign exchange for the country. Based on advanced fermenter technology, the CAPEX requirement comparatively is very less. Also, theManufacturing process is very economical and eco-friendly

COMPATIBILITY

The biological products like Bio-Fertilizers, Bio-Pesticides and others can’t be applied along with chemical fertilizers. Hence, the labor cost increases.

The biological products like Bio-Fertilizers, Bio-Pesticides and others can be easily and safely applied along with natural fertilizers. As such, it brings down the labor cost drastically.

NUTRIENT COMBINATIONS

Can have limited number of nutrient combination.

Can create any nutrient combination of NPK since all the elements are produced separately and can be blended as per the requirement.
