The purpose of this project was to field-test pelleted grocery fruit and vegetable waste as a fertilizer or high-carbon soil amendment. The project also tested the pellets as a pig feed ingredient. The waste was collected from grocery stores in the area. IRDA was responsible for treating and pelleting the waste.
From 2016 to 2017
This work will help identify potential agricultural applications for produce discarded by grocers.
