Chicken manure is the feces of chickens used as an organic fertilizer, especially for soil low in nitrogen. Of all animal manures, it has the highest amount of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium.?With the increasing focus on agriculture the demand for fertilizer will continue to grow. It takes time to build chemical fertilizer manufacturing plants and rising exchange rates will make imported fertilizer expensive.
The level of government subsidies for imported chemical fertilizers are threatened by reducing government revenues and pressure to fund infrastructural projects rather than subsidies. Thus, organic fertilizers from livestock waste represent a more viable alternative to importation and poultry farms are well positioned to exploit the supply gap in the fertilizer supply value chain.
This feasibility report is about the viability of manufacturing chicken manure or fertilizer at an input capacity of 1 metric ton per day in Lagos, Nigeria.
