    Natural insect-derived fertilizer is expected to replace traditional fertilizer

    Echemi 2020-06-19

    French insect breeding startup Ÿnsect announced that it has become the first company to obtain natural insect fertilizer certification and market approval with ŸnFrass.

    ŸnFrass originated from the feces of Tenebrio molitor. Ÿnsect France's Dole factory feeds the insect with grain by-products.

    After four years of research and development and cooperation with many leading institutions, this product can now be applied to organic agriculture in accordance with Regulation 384/2007. Its first customers include European plant nutrition producer Compo Group and European wine brand Dorothy ( Torres).

    ŸnFrass has many advantages in the highly competitive fertilizer market: the balance of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium (NPK = 4-3-2) can optimize plant nutrition; the organic content is 85%; it is granular (90% solids) Dry product, tasteless and easy to transport.

    David Houben published two articles on ynFrass in the journal Nature. He pointed out: "YnFrass has great potential and is expected to partially or completely replace mineral fertilizers."

    “YnFrass has a high content of nutrients and organic matter, and its physicochemical properties make it as effective as mineral fertilizers in plant nutrition and biomass production. Because the phosphorus (an essential element for plant growth) present in ynFrass is not highly soluble, it is lost in the soil Or fixed risk is limited, which can ensure the supply of nutrients throughout the growth of the plant."

    "The most important thing is that the application of ynFrass can increase the metabolic activity and diversity of microorganisms and improve soil function, especially when used with mineral fertilizers. Therefore, our conclusion is that ynfrass is a very promising alternative to traditional mineral fertilizers. "

    ŸnFrass is widely used and can be used in various crops, including vegetables and fruits, wine, grass, lawns and gardens, ornamental flowers and crops (especially corn, rapeseed and wheat).
