Technological innovation in the fields of microbiology and mineralization
Improving soil fertility
Like other sectors of the economy, the agricultural sector is constantly evolving, and we need to follow this evolution to ensure we do not get left behind. For this reason Redondo Izal introduces technological innovation in its composting process in the fields of microbiology and mineralization.
In its constant desire to improve the entire production process, the company Redondo Izal wants to reduce to the maximum the impacts that can arise and improve the product without increasing its final cost. For this purpose, technologies are incorporated that improve various aspects, providing unique characteristics that set it apart:
It is incorporated to improve the transformation process using "native" microorganisms specialized in decomposition and humification.
The hygiene of the final product is improved and impacts due to GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions are reduced.
Rock dust mineral technology
It consists of incorporating mineral variety in the form of dust from finely ground rocks, which fulfils several functions in the compost. The contribution of minerals in the form of rock dust leads to more intense mineralization and enriches the product in micro minerals and trace minerals, which are so important for the nutritional balance of the plants (trophobiosis theory).
At Redondo Izal we commit to R&D
The combination of both technologies allows us to obtain a very complete product and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the composting process. Both additions to the compost have the aim of improving the fertility of the soils and increasing production. Recovering soil fertility is the fundamental objective of regenerative or organic farming. Regenerated soil must have three main components: organic matter, minerals, and microbiology. Redondo Izal compost provides these three components in a balanced and natural way.
Thus, using different techniques, the manufacturing process of the product is improved in the following variables:
- Reduction of gas emissions into the atmosphere (CO2, CH4, NH3, etc.).
- Reduction of bad odours and presence of insects.
- Improvement in the hygiene of the transformation process.
- Improvement in the product's final values.
- Mineral enrichment of the product.
- General improvement of the product for agricultural soils.
- Increase in soil fertility.
- Increasing crop production in an organic way.
This type of improvement is achieved with the use of specific microbiology for composting and the use of minerals from rock dust.
To control this process, a certain type of testing is performed, called chromatographic testing, which gives accurate information at all times on the level of maturation of the compost.
By adding this compost to agricultural soil it is possible to improve the general fertility of the soil in a short time.
