• PROM is an eco friendly phosphate rich organic manure enriched with micronutrients like Copper, Cobalt & Zinc which improves the productivity of the land by maintaining pH of the soil.
• PROM is a type of organic manure used as an alternative to chemical fertilizers like DAP or SSP gives consistent crop productivity.

Benefits of PROM:

• PROM is also known as green phosphatic fertilizer and considered as the most efficient way of adding phosphorous to soil than applying chemical fertilizers which makes the Phosphorous slow release and also reduces its losses from leaching.
• PROM provides 10.4% organic origin phosphorous, 0.4% Nitrogen and also adds 7.9% organic carbon.
• PROM increases the Water Holding Capacity (WHC) of soil and hences support crop plants during adverse environmental conditions.
• PROM also improves soil structure, aeration and maintains the C:N ratio < 20:1.


Ministry of Agriculture & Cooperation, GOI has now approved Phosphate Rich Organic Manure (PROM) and included the same under Fertilizer Control Order (FCO), 1985.


PROM can be used before sowing at the time of basal application while completing the land preparation at a consistent dose of 50 kg/ acre. If no organic manure has added in soil for more than 2-3 years, its double dose is recommended per acre.
