CHEMICAL-PHYSICAL PROPERTIES:
This fertilizer contains 14% of organic Nitrogen which derives from a particular protein, the keratin; it contains 85% of organic matter, a significant quantity of Phosphorous (P205) 2-4%  and microelement.

AGRONOMIC PROPERTIES:
N organic from keratin is very resistant against mineralization process.
As a matter of fact N is degraded very slowly by soil microorganisms, therefore N transformation of organic forms are extremely graduated and progressive. Mineralization cycle is completed within 12-15 months.
Advantages ensured by organic N:
 a very good value of humus in the soil
 the growth of bacterial flora
 prevention from ground's surplus mineralization.
 save of manuring operations
 nutritional optimization to cultivation
 save of supplies of fertilizing units


HOW TO USE:
It is suggested H & H constant use for every cultivation: it is possible , in fact, to warrant a slow but rich release nutrition for plants by only twice fertilization a year: spring and autumn.
It is possible to obtain excellent results in rice-growing, horticulture, floriculture and grass carpets system.
