Considered one of the best organic fertilizers, the famous ‘chicken poop’ has become a problem in Pernambuco, Brazil’s fourth largest egg producer and ninth largest producer of chicken meat. Farmers from Barra de Guabirab, Bonita, Sairé, Camocim de São Félix, Cortês, Amaraji, Chã Grande, São Joaquim and Ribeirão understood to use it in nature in their crops of sweet potatoes, sweet potatoes, bananas, tomatoes and other crops.
It went wrong. The rains of 2022 caused an infestation of a pest caused by an insect, seemingly harmless, but which kills calves, reduces the fertility of cows and increases the frequency of abortions, the stable fly. The use of chicken litter as fertilizer requires, according to the federal regulation (No. 25, of July 2009), to be fully incorporated into the soil and pasture only after 40 days. And when this does not happen, an infestation of flies is certain. That’s what happened this year with precipitation above the historical average.
The problem is that it has been affecting cattle herds so aggressively that it has scared ranchers in these areas, including losing animals and steers. Adagro revealed yesterday that it has embarked on a more stringent assessment of more than 30 small properties. It will take more and enforce compliance with state legislation that defines adjustments. Especially since the sector now wants to produce fattened cattle for slaughter in the country with the seal of SIF in an industrial plant. A stable fly infestation is just a nuisance.
