Vinasse For Fertirrigation

Vinasse For Fertirrigation

The remaining sludge collected after the distillation is called “vinasse.” For every liter of ethanol produced, about 10 liters of vinasse by-product are obtained. The vinasse liquid is generally used back as a fertilizer for the Sweet Sorghum fields (through fertirrigation).

The advantages of the application of vinasse in the fields include:

    • Substantial reduction for mineral fertilizers applications.
    • High micro-nutrient content.
    • Improved soil structure.
    • Increased water retention.
    • Development of soil micro-flora and micro–fauna (Macedo, 2005).
