Successful Manure Management with Volga Baikal AGRO
Volga Baikal Agro involved on the Manure Project at the Rusmolco Dairy Operation ( www.rusmolco.com ) in Penza Russia this spring.
After 2 years in to the development of the Agri (Commodities Production) and Dairy-Agri Platform (Feed Production), we were faced with some issue on the proper application of Manure. The issue is about in the size of 300’000 m3 annually that will need to be properly applied in the non-winter season of the Penza Region what is mainly from end of April to end of October.
We have proper storage for 6 month of output from the Dairy Barn’s what accumulates to about 150’000 m3 ready for application end of April every year. The initial planned application with Irrigation Equipment, (Center Pivot’s) was not as successful as planned in the initial stage of the entire project, the main reason is that the manure separation cannot successful deliver the manure in a form to apply with this Irrigation Machine’s.
Volga Baikal AGRO did take over this Project last winter and created a new application Project:
- 2 Dairy Farms in a distance of 40 km, each with a rough output of 150’000 m3 annually (300’000 m3 Total).
- The Manure Solid Content is up to 5%.
- Application rate annually not to exceed 100 m3 / ha, development area for application at each location 1’500 ha (3’000 ha Total).
- Application days per season on average 100 days, taking in consideration Fields in Crop and Weather Condition.
Solution, Equipment and Supplier:
- The end solution of the project is as follow:
- Proper in soil application of the Manure for best in class utilization of the Applied Nutrients (Fertilizer)
