The Pannonia Grow organic soil

Pannonia Bio, Europe's largest biorefinery, is expanding its innovative range of organic products to support circular agriculture with the Pannonia Grow organic soil conditioner, made from maize, which can be used by both conventional and organic farmers to improve soil quality..

Use and characteristics of Pannonia Grow

Containing 7% nitrogen, Pannonia Grow can be used for soil improvement in orchards, market gardens, vineyards and arable crops. It protects against leaching while increasing the soil's water retention capacity, which is particularly important to bridge the increasingly long periods of water scarcity and drought caused by climate change. Pannonia Grow contains a high proportion of micronutrients, with a high organic matter content of 85%, which supports the proliferation of micro-organisms, increases yields and helps to maintain and enhance soil biological activity.

Benefits of Pannonia Grow

  • Promotes humus formation
  • Made exclusively from organic raw materials, using a single source of maize, quality control is assured
  • Initial, start-up effect is rapid, with long-lasting effects
  • Works effectively at low temperatures

The production of Pannonia Grow

In the plant, feed corn kernels are broken down into their constituents during processing. The starch is turned into bioethanol, the protein and oil into animal feed, and the fibre into a range of other products. One of these is the fuel for Pannonia Bio's biogas plant: wet fibre is used to produce valuable methane gas through anaerobic fermentation. The sludgy mass of valuable nutrients that remains at the end of the fermentation process, the fermentation juice is post-treated and used to make pelletized organic soil conditioner, Pannonia Grow.
