DO DIGESTERS IMPROVE CROP YIELDS?
Uganda has one of the highest rates of soil depletion and one of the lowest rates of fertilizer usage in the world. Modest rates of fertilizer application have the potential to increase yields by as much as 270% when compared the no-fertilizer regimes common among small farmers. All of Uganda’s chemical fertilizers are imported from Kenya, and Ugandan agricultural producers suffer from both chronic shortages of fertilizer and rapidly increasing prices.
Anaerobic digestion transforms waste into a safe, high-quality, and affordable fertilizer. Our team conducts field trials on crops that are important to food security to create slurry application recommendations that maximize yields.
