It seem to organic farmer like us that October is always the best month to create manure production from tithonia.
The great benefits of tithonia are no longer new. In addition to the bright yellow petals blooming throughout the Central Highlands, the nature gave them an enzyme, the acid extract from the roots can turn the hard absorption potassium into easy absorption, and the tithonia absorp Potassium, accumulating. in stems, roots, leaves, buds, flowers.
If a 2 miles large land, tithonia roots are account for 1 mile deep and 10 miles long, the amount of potassium that it can take up can theoretically be up to 1,400 kilogram.
In fact, the earth’s surface layer is 4% potassium. That means 100 kilogram of soil has 4 kilogram of potassium, 1m3 of soil on average 1.8 tons has 72 kilogram of potassium. But most of them are in insoluble form, and ordinary plants that can only get a little more cannot take any more. And you see, the tithonia have done something that hardly any plant can do.
To produce quality green tithonia compost products is a whole process, from finding and harvesting them to grinding them and composting them into finished products.
Over the years, tithonia compost has played an important role in the BIOPHAP plant. So we hope that all of the farmers will expand the area of the barn and take advantage of it effectively.
