This process is useful because with this method saves sustainability to other plants as irreconcilable to trying to buy products to do the same thing. Best results for the plant to be progressing is to be watched by farmers. This ensures the best crops to mature and grow. One of the organic fertilizers’ the farmer uses is milorganite. Milorganite is one of the oldest branded fertilizers on the market today. It is composed of heat dried microbes that have digested the organic matter in wastewater. Milorganite is manufactured by the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District. This fertilizer is slow-burned and is full of nitrogen. Being at the farm is not a lot of research on milorganite from sources outside the company. This process may be better left naturally because the process still requires man made input and output. This uses viable resources. There is an article that I found interesting and has more background about milorganite named Promoting Forest Recovery on a Surface Mine Site With Nutritional Amendments. “Two conventional fertilizers with the former featuring urea as the predominant N source while that for the latter was exclusively ammoniacal and nitrate forms; and Milorganite 6-2-0 + Iron, an organic amendment derived from municipal biosolids.” (Walker, Roger F. 2012).
