Economic effectiveness of use of liquid organic fertilizers / Kucher A.V. // Ekonomika APK. - 2016. - № 4 - P. 45

The objective of the article is to determine prognosis (approximate) indicators of economic efficiency (cost savings) of the use of liquid organic fertilizers of pig production on the example of crops such as corn, winter wheat. The study used the following methods: abstract-logical, cash-analytical, cash-equivalent, expert, monographic. The study defined higher economic efficiency of organic fertilizer application of pig farm than mineral fertilizers because the cost of their nutrients is lower than the cost of the nutrient of fertilizers, which was 4.5-8.2 times more than the NPK prime cost in organic fertilizers. Estimated economic benefit (cost savings or substitution effect) from the use of organic fertilizers from different farms instead of Nitroamofoska varies according to the pessimistic variant from 12.61 UAH/kg NPK to 17.43 UAH/kg NPK, or from 37.83 UAH to 113.30 UAH per 1 t of organic fertilizer and to the optimistic variant - from 17.00 UAH/kg NPK to 19.45 UAH/kg NPK, or from 51.00 UAH to 126.43 UAH per 1 ton of organic fertilizer. Novelty is that for the first time using the author's scientific and methodical approach there was conducted the estimation of economic effectiveness of the liquid organic fertilizer of pig farm. Using the results of the study may help improve the economic effectiveness of liquid organic fertilizers and soil fertility reproduction. Tabl.: 5. Refs.: 15.
