This agribusiness idea can make you money and become your main business.
To make this fertiliser, it is very easy.
Rabbit’s urine is put into a 25 litre jerry can mixed with 500 ml drops of sugar fluid, 240 ml of EM4 (bacterial decomposition), and one litre
of water of thick rice washing or 100g in one litre of water corn starch mixture to help feed the micro-organisms..
Then the jerry can is sealed, but the lid is perforated and attached with a hose.
In order the fluid of fertiliser fermentation to remain sterile, the hose is dipped into a bottle filled with water.
At least once a week, the fluid of fermented urine should be stirred to dissolve evenly and not precipitate.
After three weeks ,this liquid will change its colour and smell.
The colour will change to black, and smell like wine, not urine smell anymore.
For fertiliser application to crops, the ratio of dilution is
1:10, ie 1 litre fertiliser mixed with 10 litres of water for foliar application or fertigation in drip irrigation systems.
In the early stages of fermentation, a mixture of rabbit’s urine with other materials produces a stinging smell due to release of ammonia gas during decomposition.
In order not to disturb other people, the jerrycan containing urine fermentation is stored in the courtyard area or far from immediate human habitation ,eg dwelling house , so that the stinging odor produced does not inconvenience the household.
Organic contents in the process of rabbit’s urine fertiliser are the substances needed to fertilise the soil, namely nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and calcium.
Where possible, it is important to submit a sample of this bio-fertilizer to local agricultural laboratories for analysis of N.P.K nutrient percentage.
These substances can improve the structure of soil nutrient and organic matter, and keep a good number of micro-organisms in the soil.
Thus, the plants will grow quickly and also reduces pests and plant diseases.
But more importantly than that, it is
environmentally friendly fertiliser and in line with the spirit of the present world that goes green.
The fund needed for making 50 litres of this organic fertiliser is relatively cheap.
Rabbit’s urine purchased from rabbit
breeder at a price of (USD 0.16) per litre.
Other materials are also relatively inexpensive: EM4. (USD 1.4) per litre, sugar drops/molasses (USD 0.32) per 1.5
Less then(USD 55.6) to make 50 litres of
Go on and start your own agribusiness making Bio-fertiliser from Rabbit urine!
