Bio Conversion and Recycling of Zea Mays L Waste Implementing Bulking Agents and Dry Leaves for Leachate Control

Shaktibala


Abstract: The agricultural recycling of Zea Mays L waste by the process of composting is the most promising sector in comparison to other disposal routes such as incineration and land filling. Indeed, the Zea Mays L compost is a good fertilizer that can increase crop harvests and improve the physicochemical and biological properties of the soil. In this regard, the present study aims to determine the agronomic value of Zea MaysL waste collected from Muhana village near Sanganer, Jaipur [1]. A pilot study was conducted to assess the feasibility of physio-chemical parameter of compost formed in five different trials (T1, T2, T3, T4 and T5) with the addition of 10 kg of dry leaves for proper aeration to control the leachate formation in drum composting. Mature compost is of brownish black in color obtained in third trial (T3) at the 20 day of composting [2]. Third trial composting gives the good quality compost having the characterized moisture 23.22 %, pH 7.31, Electrical conductivity 3.3 dsm-1, BOD 402 mg/l, COD 668 mg/l, TOC 34.18, % Nitrogen 2.47 %, Phosphorous 0.71 %, Potassium 1.28 %, C/N ratio 15.551. After that in trial 3 the compost starts to give a constant value of the determined parameters.
