Abstract:
The present study was conducted to see the effect of dilution rates of pig faeces on bacterial load of bio-slurry produced during anaerobic digestion (AD) technology for its safer use as natural fertilizer. The study period was of 3 months from June to August 2021. Four groups having different dilution rates of 1:8 (T0= control), 1:6 (T1), 1:4 (T2) and 1:2 (T3) were taken. The bacterial load for control as well as all the treatments was analysed using pour plate technique on day 0, 45 and 90. In case of TBC reduction, T0 group performed better, whereas, for E. coli reduction T2 group performed better than others. For salmonella and alike microbes reduction, all the groups did not show any significant difference. The results of the present study showed that AD technology have marked effect in the reduction of bacterial load of bio-slurry, making it safe for the use as natural fertilizer.
