Before knowing the cost of the organic granular fertilizer production line, you’d better know the fundamental steps to make organic granular fertilizer. As we have introduced in our previous articles about organic fertilizer production lines, we can divide this production line into two main processes: composting and granulating. These two processes are indispensable. Other auxiliary fertilizer equipment is in accordance with your budget. Now, let’s talk about the cost of this production line.

How Much Will You Spend In Making Compost?

Raw materials of organic materials are livestock and poultry manure, city waste, or sludge. Also, many other organic wastes can be raw materials. There are many similarities between these wastes, such as unpleasant odor, high moisture content, and bacteria in them. To get better use of them, you need to ferment them first. Organic waste will lose the unpleasant odor and reduce moisture to 20%. One useful way to ferment them is by making compost. Of course, organic wastes can decompose by microbes in them. But the natural decomposition will take you a long time(about 2-3 months). It’s reasonable if you make your own compost for your garden. However, if you intend to make commercial granulated organic fertilizer, it is by no means reasonable. To speed up the composting process, a compost turner is necessary. But how can you choose one composting machine suitable for your factory?

Equipment costs for making organic compost


Groove Type Composting Machine



This type of composting machine is not expensive and you need to construct several grooves. The spans of the groove type can be 3-30 meters and the height can be 0.8-1.8 meters. The span and height of the groove type are customizable. The price of them also varies.

Crawler Type Compost Turner


Many customers choose this type of machine. One reason is its efficiency when operating and the other reason is that it can save construction costs. Moreover, there are steel drums on the beam of the machine. These drums can not only turn but also crush materials. The only thing you need to do is to pile up long stacks(windrows) on smooth ground. It also means you need spacious factory grounds. The capacity of the crawler-type compost turner can reach from 500-1500 m³.

Wheel-Type Compost Turner


Wheel type compost turners have a large capacity and only requires one groove with a large span. The largest width of it can be 30 meters. Thus, it can turn the compost efficiently.

Cost Of Making organic pellets

To make granular organic compost, the next step is to crush the well-fermented compost. You can use a semi-wet crusher or a vertical crusher to crush the compost into powder. Then, screen impurities in the powder. Till now, you can prepare to make fertilizer pellets. As for granulating machines, follows are for your reference.

Cost of other auxiliary equipment

Before granulating, you need auxiliary equipment to process the compost. A rotary screener and a crusher are necessary. The price of these two pieces of equipment is determined by the capacity you produce.

After granulating, you need to reduce the moisture to under 20% so that you can pack and store organic fertilizer. For one-ton scale production, you need a rotary dryer. While if the capacity is larger than this, you also need a cooler.

The final step is to pack, in this production line, an automatic pellet packaging machine can do you a favor. Also, belt conveyor is indispensable.

Thus to summarize, the cost of the organic granular fertilizer production line is not fixed. The cost depends on what equipment you choose. For a whole set of production line of 5-ton per hour capacity, it will cost you about $150,000-$20,000(including construction and workers’ paycheck).
