Who we are
Cresconia GmbH has set itself the target to preserve the soil fertility by producing ecological products in the form of organic natural fertilizers of the highest quality, which sustainably contributes to the improvement of the soil without using any chemical additives.
Natural plant fertilization today is both a commitment and an opportunity. Legal provisions on licensing requirements, limit values and other requirements are being continuously tightened for the common good.
New specifications for the plant fertilization arise with the implementation of which we will gladly assist you.
The team of Cresconia GmbH therefore represents nature-friendly and sustainable gardening, optimally supplied plants and healthy food.
The current situation
In livestock farming the excretions of animals arise as valuable plant fertiliser with many essential nutrients. Normally, this is spread again on agricultural land and thus returned to the cycle of raw materials.
If, compared to the available agricultural area, a lot of animals are kept, the amount of manure and nutrients contained therein is higher than the surfaces are able to store. The plants on these fields would not be able to fully absorb the applied amounts of nutrients so that the surplus would be washed into groundwater.
To prevent this from happening, the Fertilizer Ordinance of the EU regulates the amount of nutrients that farmers are allowed to deploy on their areas per year.
Since the amendment to the Fertilizer Ordinance of the EU in 2017, the regulations have become significantly stricter, with many animal owners facing nutrient surpluses in their agricultural enterprises, so they have to look for other opportunities of a meaningful utilization of the surplus manure outside of their farm areas.
What we do
In cooperation with SEG Tierhaltungsbedarf GmbH, Cresconia GmbH has developed the product CRESCOSAN®, a natural fertilizer based on the recyclables which accrues in livestock farming or biogas production.
In our organic mineral fertilizer CRESCOSAN® all the valuable components from the animal manure or fermentation are preserved. Thus, the phosphate is transferred with 99 per cent of the source material into the fertilizer. The nitrate contained is separated not only from the original substrate, but it is metabolized instead – meaning, it is almost completely converted into organically bound nitrogen. This prevents washing out of the nutrient from the soil. Therefore, the remaining liquid part contains almost no phosphates and the nitrate level drops on average below 3 mg/l.
This significantly relieves environment and agriculture!
These possibilities have been made possible by an associated company, which has specialized on processing of agricultural animal manure and fermentation residues.
A physical separation process, developed by this company, binds without the addition of chemical components, only with the aid of natural raw materials, such as various starch products and primary rock flour, all nutrients from animal manure or fermentation residues and provides these in metabolized form as high-quality, organic natural fertilizer – in our product CRESCOSAN®.
This unique separation process was acknowledged in November 2018 by the German Agricultural Society (DLG) eG and awarded with the gold medal.
The starch products used in the manufacturing process meet the requirements of the Fertilizer Ordinance of 2017 and are produced by local farmers. The raw material of the fertilizer is dried with low emissions in a BImSch-approved drying plant with integrated air scrubbers and then pelletised.
As a result, CRESCOSAN® can be used precisely dosed and is of course germ-free and hygienic.
Our product is FIBL certified and corresponds to the guidelines for use in organic farming:
