Interview with Arie van de Wijgert “FERM O FEED’s strength lies in the fact that we control the entire supply chain, up from production to delivery.” “We export organic Fertilizers to more than 40 countries worldwide, mostly in Europe, Latin America, Africa and the Middle- and Far East. More and more products are used in retail, but the bulk of the organic Fertilizers is used in professional agriculture. Due to the growing focus on sustainable products, and thereby the increasing demand for organic Fertilizers, FERM O FEED extends its product range further to meet the needs of the customer. FERM O FEED’s strength lies in the fact that we control the entire supply chain, from production to delivery. The organic Fertilizers not only are all produced inhouse, but we also transport our products to the customers 4

ourselves. FERM O FEED can guarantee certain aspects of delivery and production, where others cannot. Because FERM O FEED sticks to its core business – product innovation in organic Fertilizers – we have extended knowledge of the market and organic Fertilizers in general. When our (potential) customers need advice, we turn out to be not only a supplier but also an advisor. FERM O FEED is ambitious; we aim to service our customers to perfection.

Sandy soils poor in humus can’t retain nutrients.

Effect of cation exchange capacity to soil with the addition of humic acid.

If one of these nutrients does not have an adequate supply in the soil you begin to limit your yield or the ability of your plant to thrive. Ferm O Feed Organic Fertilizers provide all elements for any plant to grow.

Our organic Fertilizers improve the health and well being of the host of your cultivation: the soil. Our pellets de-block and regulate the minerals in the soil, and you will notice the consequence: an excellent result on crop yield and quality.

Decomposing or mineralisation depends on temperature, moisture and aeration of the soil. In spring, when temperature rises up, mineralisation will speed up when the plant grows. With a low C/N ratio, the pellets free nitrogen when microorganisms decompose the organic material. These organisms will also decompose organic material with a high C/N ratio. Whereas an ordinary organic Fertilizer is used, plant growth will be negatively affected by low nitrogen availability, but during the decomposing or mineralisation process of our organic Fertilizers the opposite happens: nitrogen will become available instead. Microorganisms demanding air from outside decompose the organic material in our products. This will aerate the soil and stimulate root

activity. Organic material is also important for moisture holding in the soil and the prevention of erosion. Our pellets will absorb three times its weight while breaking down. Organic Fertilizers, from FERM O FEED, are an easy to use basic organic Fertilizer with proven yield. The content of stable organic material is combined with a relatively high N-P-K content. Additionally, it's a 100% natural product that maintains trace elements, very important for enzyme and photoelectric functions of crops. Organic Fertilizers are easy to apply in the field. Our pellets can be spread over the land using the same machine that is used for the appliance of mineral Fertilizers. Our organic Fertilizers are less dense than mineral Fertilizers.

Organic material is important for moisture holding in the soil and the prevention of erosion.

Production Facility Our Organic Fertilizers are produced by state-of-the-art technology under control of a highly skilled production team. The raw material is brought to our factory by trucks. Trained workers will control the raw material before it enters our installations. If the material does not fit our standards it will not be accepted. Once in our factory, we mix the various raw materials. After the first processing step containing mixing and neutralizing, the product enters the composting area. By controlling the oxygen level and temperature the product is composted in order to obtain a stable product. Two kilo of starting prime product will yield one and a half kilo of organic Fertilizer. When the product leaves the composting process it is dehydrated and physically processed. The product is now pressed in a pellet, to be easily applied in the field. Organic Fertilizers can be spread over the land using the same machines as for mineral Fertilizers. A special sieve is used before packing the product preventing particles smaller than 2 mm (dust) to be incorporated in the commercial product. Organic Fertilizer can be packed in plastic bags of 10 kg, 20 kg of 25 kg, or in big bags of 500 kg till 1500 kg. Stored in a cool and dry place Organic Fertilizer can be maintained for a long time without loss of quality.

Ferm O Feed main brand Organic Fertilizers: Fertiplus速, Topmix, Activit Organic Fertilizer applied in the soil has a regular function for the soil minerals. When you have problems of blocked minerals you will notice an excellent result on crop yield and quality. You will see both, a de-blocking and a regulated effect at the same time. Farmers have noticed this effect on their invoices on fertilization products. Minerals do not get lost by leaching and they are not blocked but available to the crop. Organic material is also important for moisture holding in the soil and will prevent erosion. Organic Fertilizer absorbs three times its weight in moisture while the pellet will break down. Farmers have noticed this when they apply the product localized filling a hole. After the growing season a network of roots is observed in the place where they brought in organic Fertilizer of Ferm O Feed. This is also the best way to show that organic Fertilizer does not burn the roots. Our products are not only a source of equal in importance minerals (macro and micro nutrients) needed for a strong and healthy growth of any plant, but also a source of organic matter to the soil. They increase the water retaining capacity, restores depleted soil to a healthy PH balance and increases beneficial microbiological activity.

Special attention should be paid, that chicken manure is considered as "hot" and must be processed before it is added to any soil. This will avoid "burning" and over-fertilizing. Pellets are the most comfortable and safe way using chicken manure as Organic Fertilizer.

Control Union The organic Fertilizer for biological cultivation is produced from chicken manure from free-range hens from CPEcertified poultry farms. The ingredients of Organic Fertilizer for biological cultivation comply with EEG regulation EEC 834/2007 889/2008 appendix IIA. For the production and marketing of this Fertilizer, Ferm-O-Feed is monitored and inspected by Control Union Certifications under company number 800837.

The quality of a fertilizer directly depends of the material from which it is produced. The raw materials used in making our fine Organic Fertilizers come from selected farms that are strictly monitored for hygiene, quality and continuity. The state-of-the-art production process, which takes place in our ultramodern factory, is continuously checked and monitored. Any germs or weed seeds are killed through a special process of fermentation and drying. The final product is overseen by an independent and accredited laboratory. This guarantees its high quality.

Humic and amino acids Organic Fertilizer contains approx. 20% humic acids and a slightly lower percentage of amino acids. These organic acids are formed during the composting process of the starting material. Not all organic material is converted into these acids during composting, but most of the material humifies once it is put into the soil. This is a slow process during which time the humic acids are released gradually. This is the most important part of the basic fertilization process, which is essential for cultivation during the growing season. These organic acids form complexes with inorganic particles in the soil, resulting in the release of nutrients such as phosphorous. The clay-calcium-humus complex has an important function in the soil. This complex has the ability to absorb anions and cations and facilitates the release of ions into the soil making them available to plants. Within this same complex there is room for absorption of water, up to 15 times the material’s own weight. As a result this complex keeps the soil moist, prevents dehydration of the soil, protects it from erosion and ensures bacterial viability in the soil. This humus complex also reacts with tricalcium phosphate and sesquioxide complexes, whereby locked and immobilized phosphorous in these inorganic complexes is unblocked and released into the soil. There are 2 types of humic acids in Organic Fertilizer: humic acids and fulvic acids. Fulvic acids dissolve when they come into contact with amino acids and sugars and in solutions with a low pH. Fulvic acid molecules are smaller than in the humic acids and the presence of humic acids accelerates this dissolving process. During decomposition, humic acids are transformed into fulvic acids. The remaining organic material, which cannot be defined as humic or fulvic acids, is called humin and fresh organic matter. Naturally this material decomposes slowly and forms soluble substances. Organic Fertilizer contains a lot of proteins. The proteins are broken down during the fermentation process and are humified into amino acids. The amino acids activate the bacterial life in the soil and stimulate the root activity of the crops. The development of the microorganism fauna in the soil is essential to fertilization as this aids uptake of nutrients in plants. 10


Traceability Ferm O Feed has introduced a traceability system. In practice, this system means that the materials used in the production process and during logistic operations can be followed step by step. The system enables us to monitor the quality from the raw materials to the product delivered to the customer. The system works as follows: during the production process codes are assigned to each production batch of organic Fertilizer; the batch number then follows the ingredients/product on the journey to the place of administration. Samples are taken from each batch, and these samples undergo a general quality analysis. The results of these analyses are linked to the batch codes. If necessary, additional and more specific analyses can be performed on request, either during the production process or while packaging. An example of such an analysis is testing to ensure that the product is free of pathogens. In this case the batch number is also printed on the delivery receipt and the invoice. This form of traceability is an extra service which we offer to our customers on request. The Eurogap standards and the requirements of some distribution chains can require registration of the products used during the production process. This often includes documenting the origin of the organic material and its sanitary quality. With a good traceability plan, like the one offered for the Organic Fertilizers, the fruit and vegetable producer can demonstrate the composition, origin and sanitary quality of the organic fertiliser used. This is particularly important with regards to the absence of pathogens in organic Fertilizers and for the natural origins of the product. At this time, a number of food distribution chains in the UK have already made Ferm O Feed’s traceability plan a requirement to accept the use of Organic Fertilizers as an organic material. Ferm O Feed can provide 2 methods of traceability.

A good traceability plan is very important for the fruit and vegetable producer. The first method, which is also the most complicated and most expensive, is to follow the product from the organic raw material to the final product. We only offer this service to our customers if this strict requirement is necessary. After all, the quality control during the production process already provides sufficient guarantees. The product from each production batch is analysed to check its composition and confirm the absence of pathogens. Then the organic Fertilizer is stored in bulk together with the other production batches. However, Organic Fertilizer that does not meet the defined quality standards is never allowed into this storage area. The second method of traceability is to analyse samples during the packaging process or during transport to the customer. These analyses are carried out in accordance with the instructions of the organic Fertilizer customer. In this case, batches of organic Fertilizer are made, and a sample is taken from each batch and then analysed. A second sample is also taken from each batch, and stored for a certain period of time for any check analysis. Thanks to this second option combined with good quality control during the production process, most fruit and vegetable buyers accept the use of organic Fertilizers. 11


Loss of organic material in the soil A theoretical estimation to give an idea of the yearly loss organic material.

Principles

Conclusion

• Cultivated topsoil: 25 cm (0,25 m) • Surface: 10.000 m2 • Organic matter: 2% • Specific gravity soil: 1.300 kg / m3 • Mineralisation factor: 3% year • Organic matter FERTIPLUS 65%

Although Organic Fertilizer is not only a substitute of organic material it can clearly be used for that. Organic Fertilizer should be used on base of crop needs in basic Fertilizer and organic matter replacement in your field.

Cultivated soil • 0,25 m x 10.000 m2 x 1.300 kg / m3 = 3.350.000 kg • Total organic matter in soil: 3.350.000 x 2% = 65.000 kg

Yearly breakdown of organic matter • 65.000 kg x 3% = 1.950 kg

Replacement of organic matter • Crop rests in the field: 750 - 1.250 kg • Netto need of external organic material: 700 - 1.200 kg • In terms of Organic Fertilizer 4-3-3 65 OM: 1.100 - 1.850 kg

Application Organic Fertilizers The excellent shape of the pellets means that Organic Fertilizers of Ferm O Feed can be very well distributed with the aid of a fertilizer spreader. Of course the fertilizer can also be distributed with the aid of a sowing machine or by hand. Organic Fertilizers can be stored in dry, well-ventilated areas for longer periods.

Liquid fertilizers The advantage of a liquid fertilizer is that you can adjust directly by cultivation. Especially in the development of deficiency symptoms it is necessary to react quick. With a foliar fertilizer you have immediately visible results, with fertigation results are visible within a few days. Topmix-LIQ NPK 2-1-8 can be spend on the soil hardening the crops. Root formation or Flowering can be induced by a foliar spray or fertigation with extra Topmix-LIQ NPK 0-15-3. A foliar feed mix made with Topmix-LIQ NPK 15-0-0 and Topmix-LIQ magnesium 6 gives beautiful dark plants.

Organic Fertilizer 4-3-3 Organic Fertilizer 4-3-3 is a well-known 100% organic Fertilizer pellet, ecologic and hygienic. It can be packed under different brand names. The organic material in this excellent, natural plant Fertilizer contains mostly humic acid structures, humic acids benefit soils in facilitating its nutrient availability, they release gradually the minerals present in the ground and therefore, minerals become more available for absorption by the roots of plants.

Organic Fertilizer correct application prevents symptoms of deficiency in the crops during the growing season. This positive effect of organic Fertilizer means a considerable saving in mineral Fertilizers, and a reduction of mineral Fertilizers application in the soil, is good for the environment and help preventing soil alkalisation. Furthermore, using a Organic Fertilizer leads to an increase in the microbiological activity in the soil. Organic substances are broken down by the soil life into humic acids and amino acids, during this process, oxygen is required and attracting air, so that the agricultural ground becomes airier. Air, water and elements are equal in importance for any plant to grow. Besides, suffocation of the roots is a problem easily prevented by maintaining a spongy soil.

î Ą Agriland, Libanon Since 2001, our company is maintaining strong relations with Ferm O Feed, our organic amendment supplier. The purchased product Fertiplus was applied to both open field and protected plantations and provided high quality and efficiency. It becomes a well known product in the Lebanese market and is used to improve soil quality, increase available nutrients to the plant and improve both quality and quantity of the fruits. Over the last years we build with Ferm O Feed on a long term based and reliable relationship which results in a healthy and sustainable business partnership.

î ˘ Imaos Marcelinos, Almeirim, Portugal Mr. Marcelinos started using Ferm O Feed Organic Fertilizers on his tomatoes a long time ago. Together with his brother he runs a 110 hectare horticultural company. Nowadays he uses Organic Fertilizers on almost all his crops like; courgettes, grapes, carrots, broccoli and so on. He has one location where he applies 1250 kg of Organic Fertilizers once a year. Besides Organic Fertilizers only a very small quantity of soluble Fertilizer is added through drip irrigation. Although no common chemical Fertilizer has been used, the harvest of broccoli and the harvest of courgettes has increased each year.

î Ł Wu Sheng-Quan, Taiwan Mr. Ouh used our fertilizer 5-4-4 (FiveLeaf packaging) for its grapes and jiun. The grapes are grown on large horizontal stems. Among the grapes grown jiun. The branches of the jiun plants are held down with ropes. The jiun cultivation is irrelevant as cultivation but beneficial to the soil. The grapes are the main source of income. The grapes are harvested two times a year. From the start of the fruit development into mature grape takes 120 days, the grapes on the photos are 60 days. Each year he used for 1 hectare 2500 - 3000 kg organic fertilizers. This is given in several steps by the year. The granules are presented close to the irrigation system (water is delivered from the top).

Ground covers

Biomass

Tree bark as a ground cover is a 100% natural product. It inhibits the growth of weeds and protects your plants against cold and frost. The use of wood chips as ground cover has many advantages. The ground remains moist and does not dry out. A layer of composted wood chips will keep the soil moist. In addition, many bacteria that live in the soil multiply when a layer of wood chips is laid in the trenches.

Biomass is organic material that is used to replace fossil fuels. Suitable input material is selected by means of meticulously controlled collection. Plant/tree trimmings are separated from other green waste and any impurities removed. The wood is then shredded or reduced in size to suit the requirements of the customer.
