About the Practice
Problem Statement:

It is time consuming (about 3-4 months) and laborious task to prepare the manure.


Innovator’s machine is a tractor PTO driven machine, which can thoroughly mix and moisten the bio-waste, reducing the time of decomposition from 3-4 months to 20-45 days. The revolving blades of machines mixes the waste material systematically while as fine water spray is done simultaneously by the attachment fitted with machine. After completing the first round of mixing the material is left for a day or two and process is repeated after an interval of 2-3 days so that process of natural decomposition takes place. After 4-5 days and repetition of mixing process 2-3 times, the compost is ready to use in Agriculture as natural/organic fertilizer.

Practice Details

Link: The machine can turn and mix biomass of size 6.5 ft x 2.5 ft (i.e. about total 1200 tons) in an hour and consumes 3.5-4.0 litre diesel for the purpose. The compost has better fertility value as compared to farmyard manure and vermi-compost; and it has more nitrogenous content. The machine maintains optimum temperature for making compost. The machine reduces the dependency on labour, as the waste does not have to be collected in pits. The waste is spread in rows on the ground and then processed by the machine.
Manufacturing Capacity: b) Design Support
