Slow release fertilizer using biochar from hemp cores by granulation process for sustainable agriculture

Description: Today, Farmer use a lot of chemical fertilizers, which increase the cost of purchasing fertilizer. We are interested in reducing economic problems by enabling nutrients to be released into the soil longer than with commercial chemical fertilizers. Hemp core is burned by torrefactions, becoming biochar. Bringing chemical fertilizers into contact with the granulation process to study the slow passage of nutrients inside the fertilizer into the soil The granulation process makes fertilizers easy to use and convenient to transport, making fertilizer more efficient.
