“50 thousand decares of soil was enriched with natural fertilizer
In his speech at the 4th Organic and Organomineral Field Day, Sütaş Group Energy and Fertilizer Facilities General Manager İlker İhsan Çabukol gave information about the work done so far and drew attention to the fact that they enriched approximately 50 thousand decares of soil by producing a total of 45 thousand tons of organic and 1.636 tons of organomineral fertilizers in 2020. Expressing that nearly 30 percent increase in yield has been achieved with liquid fermented organic fertilizer applications in areas where the organic matter of the soil is insufficient and where irrigated agriculture is not performed, Çabukol also emphasized that organic and organomineral fertilizers improve the quality and aroma properties of fruit, vegetables and fodder plants.
Noting that R&D studies continue in 3 different application fields for 3 products within the scope of the project, Çabukol said, “This year, our project continues in the corn and tomato application field in Bursa Karacabey and in the corn application field in Bingöl. We are planning similar organizations in these fields in September-October, when these products will be harvested. Sütaş creates a unique sustainability model with its environmental, social and economic dimensions by its Integrated Business Model “Farm to Table”. It is also important to show the farmers the effects of organic and organomineral fertilizers on soil and crops by establishing application fields in order to understand how comprehensive this model is.”
