Hossein Barani Beyranvand, the head of the Department of Economic, Knowledge-Based and Investment Affairs of the Islamic Azad University, announced launching the hi-tech organic fertilizer production line, and said, “Given the new management approach adopted by this academic unit, support for green industries with high technology and the use of organic products have been put on the agenda of the management council of the university's knowledge-based activities.”

He explained that the plan to produce organic supplementary fertilizer was implemented by Islamic Azad University due to the environmental hazards caused by the use of chemical fertilizers, adding that at present the first stage of production of these fertilizers is being implemented and the second stage will also be operational in the next few months.

"A 400sq/m shed has been supplied to the applicant company for implementation of the project, and the possibility of employing four people directly has been provided. If the production process improves, the company can produce up to three tons of organic fertilizers per day,” Barani Beyranvand said.

Organic fertilizers are naturally available as mineral sources that contain moderate amount of plant essential nutrients. They are capable of mitigating problems associated with synthetic fertilizers. They reduce the necessity of repeated application of synthetic fertilizers to maintain soil fertility.

They gradually release nutrients into the soil solution and maintain nutrient balance for healthy growth of crop plants. They also act as an effective energy source of soil microbes which in turn improve soil structure and crop growth.

Organic fertilizers are generally thought to be slow releasing fertilizers and they contain many trace elements. They are safer alternatives to chemical fertilizers.
