How to compost farm waste? Three on-farm composting methods for your reference
During composting, you need to collect your farm wastes and stack them into compost piles. To complete harmless process of organic farm litter, compost pile must be aerated to sustain microbial activity and adequate temperatures. Here, the common methods of on-farm composting are trench type fermentation, windrows (elongated piles), and in-vessel (enclosed compost machine) composting.
Trench type fermentation of farm waste
Groove composting (or trench composting) is widely used in farms waste fermentation. Using this method, you can complete the harmless process of farm waste in an easier way without waiting for natural decomposition. But only collecting farm waste (such as animal manure, sawdust, etc) and stacking them together in the trench is not groove composting. You need to turn the raw materials to make them fully fermented. For this, SX can offer you wheel type compost turner, groove type compost machine and chain plate type composter.
Windrow composting on the ground
Windrow composting is another farm composting method. To establish a windrow composting system in your farm, you need to find an open space in your farm. Then, you need to stack your farm waste into long windrows. After that, a windrow compost turner will help you turn and mix the compost piles regularly to aerate the pile and to reestablish pore space. So the microorganisms in manure can decompose organic matter effectively. In SX, there are two kinds of windrow compost turning machines for your choice. Including crawler type compost machine and moving type compost turner. (just like the picture shows below)
Enviromentally friendly in-vessel composting
This composting method is to collect your farm wastes to be fermented in a closed composting equipment. Compared to the farm composting methods above, this method can decompose the farm waste more quickly. This is because the whole fermentation process is taking place in a closed environment, which can isolate outside world influences. In addition, it has a less space occupation than other fertilizer compost machines. If your space for fermentation is small, it is optimal choice for you. SX can offer you vertical in-vessel fermentation tank and horizontal fermentation machine for your farm waste disposal. Moreover, you can customize this compost facilities to suit for your farm.

All farm composting machines mentioned above adopt aerobic fermentation technology. This advanced composting technology is widely used in the compost fertilizer production process. It is a metabolic process by which cells metabolize sugars via fermentation in the presence of oxygen.

So microorganisms in materials have enough power to decompose organic matter and generate heat to kill harmful substances in farm litter.
