Humus AnEnzyŽ

What is HUMUS ANENZYŽ?

HUMUS ANENZYŽ is a range of framed organic fertilizers, at regulatory level, as mixed composted improvers.
The improvers are fertilizers used to improve soil, or to maintain or increase fertility.
In the mixed composted improvers category, a wide variety of highly heterogeneous products are mixed together for agronomic characteristics and for intended use.
HUMUS ANENZYŽ range Improvers come from an integrated, biomass-valued process (animal dejection, agro-food by-products and plant materials) that combines anaerobic digestion and composting.
The production process, apart from the selection of raw materials, delivers the complete traceability of the supply chain, providing quality assurances that are often unattainable in the compost landscape.


Normative References - Allowed in Biological Agriculture

The Humus AnEnzyŽ range is made up of specific products falling within the permitted bioavailability modifiers as they are produced from suitably selected manures, from non-industrial previously fermented farms and from a blend of agricultural plant by-products.
The definition of Industrial Breeding: was clarified by the DM-18354-27-11-2009.
Humus AnEnzyŽ falls into the category "Mixed Composting Improvers" (Annex 2 - n. 5 Legislative Decree 75_2010 - p. 53 - 54).
This decree clarifies that fertilizers in possession of the characteristics defined in the aforementioned decree (Table 1 List of fertilizers suitable for use in organic farming Legislative Decree 75_2010) can be registered in the REGISTER OF FERTILIZERS AGREED IN BIOLOGICAL AGRICULTURE in place of the previous one.
In the specific case of the mixed composite improvers in which the products of the Humus AnEnzyŽ range belong, the decree lists the raw materials that can be used (table 1 List of fertilizers suitable for use in organic farming Legislative Decree 75_2010 - Amendments - p. 131). As far as animal excrements are concerned, they are only EXCLUSIVE in case they come from non-industrial breeding farms (condition as required by EC Regulation 889/2008).


Why use HUMUS ANENZYŽ Improvers?

The use of HUMUS ANENZYŽ improvers completely replaces the manuring, but not the fertilization, which however significantly reduces the requirements, as it delivers a fair amount of nutrients and optimizes fertilizer effect.
In cultivated soils, continuous biomass takeovers and repeated processing results in the gradual decrease of the organic matter contained therein. In extreme cases (soils with organic matter <1.5%) there is even desertification, as the soil becomes an inhospitable mean for many forms of life, whether plant, animal or microbial.
The specific function of the HUMUS ANENZYŽ improvers is to make a stable organic substance, thus improving the physical, chemical and biological properties of the soil and, secondly, producing nutrients for the crops.


What are the effects of HUMUS ANENZYŽ Improvers?

  • improving the structure of the soil and make it more resistant to compacting (improve aeration, drainage, machinability, thermal inertia, increase soil water retention);
  • favoring the creation of stable aggregates can be a valuable help in the containment of erosive phenomena of sloping terrain;
  • improving the nutritional function of the soil (increasing cationic capacity decreases the leaching and creates a stock of nutrients, which are released gradually);
  • increasing the soil swelling power (property that makes the soil able to buffer sudden changes in chemical properties, allowing plants greater adaptation possibilities);
  • making microorganisms capable of carrying out many useful functions for crops (increase the availability of micronutrients, induce resistance to plants, compete with certain pathogens);
  • bringing nutrients to the soil and thus reduce the doses of chemical fertilizers;
  • they are an excellent substitute for manure, with respect to which the most contained doses are sufficient;
  • inducing invigorating effects on cultures for stimulating microbial and enzymatic activity.

What are the distinctive features of HUMUS ANENZYŽ Improvers?

  • unlike most composts, they offer uniformity of agronomic characteristics between lots, thanks to the standardization of the production process and the raw materials used;
  • they have the full traceability of a production chain;
  • raw materials are selected and mainly made from manure and do not contain sludge;
  • the production process involves a dual passage of sanitation (anaerobic phase and thermophilic phase) to break down pathogenic microorganisms;
  • the production chain is highly environmentally sustainable as it:
    - Valorizes a potentially polluting waste for presence of nitrates by helping breeders comply with the Nitrate Standards;
    - produces renewable energy;
    - reduces CO2 emissions into the atmosphere;
    - reduces emissions due to the production of synthetic fertilizers;
    - reduces the use of peat.

Use and doses of use

  • HUMUS ANENZYŽ Improvers can be used in:
  • full-fledged agriculture;
  • tree crops (orchards and vineyards) in pre-planting and covering;
  • horticulture;
  • nursing (in substrate composition);
  • professional gardening and hobby activities.

HUMUS ANENZYŽ improvers should be administered and submerged during soil, until up to a depth of 30 cm within 6 hours after spreading to avoid oxidation. Generally, the digestion is carried out at the same time as the working of the soil and, if possible, it should be anticipated for several weeks with respect to sowing or transplantation.It is advisable, in the event of storage of the product, to keep it covered in shelter from bad weather and direct sunlight and to administer it within 1 year to reduce leakage of organic matter. It should be noted that crop effects are unlikely to occur before the 2nd year, as the soil fertility increase does not directly affect the crop. In addition, the amount of adjusting agent, in order to be obtain the desired effect, must be constant. On the other hand, sufficiently modified soils present the so-called "old strength" or maintain long-term fertility even if the administration is interrupted.HUMUS ANENZYŽ is not pelletized because palletization is an energy and climatic energy inefficiency in the modern production chains: an environmentally sustainable product needs low energy inputs, furthermore the thermal processes required for pelletizing drastically compromise the precious microbial charge of the aggregate (we must consider the increasing microbial impoverishment of our soils, for example, the Po Valley has the ground with the highest loss of micro biodiversity in Europe).The distribution of HUMUS ANENZYŽ can be done with special machines called hum spreaders.
