It occurs in nature as a mineral, is a source of nitrogen, from which it derives its ium nitrate is one of several nitrogen-containing compounds collectively referred to as saltpeter or saltpetre.. Major uses of potassium nitrate are in fertilizers, tree stump removal, rocket propellants and is one of the major constituents of gunpowder (black powder).Chemical formula: KNO₃.

And a whole cascade of environmental and historical effects (such as the Pacific war, won by Chile).Cited by: The most significant nitrogen Guano is the Peru-Guano, which has been used over years as agricultural fertilizer in Peru.

In Europe the application of Guano as fertilizer emerged in the as “Guano boom” and lasted until the early twentieth century when Guano was replaced by industrial manufactured : Ewald Schnug, Frank Jacobs, Kirsten Stöven.

It never rains, so the guano just piles up. The Guano Era refers to a period of stability and prosperity in Peru during the midth century. It was sustained on the substantial revenues generated by the export of guano and the strong leadership of president Ramón Castilla.

The starting date for the guano era is commonly considered to bethe year in which Castilla started his first administration. It ended shortly after the war between Spain and Peru.

Peruvian guano was rich in nitrogen, ammonia, phosphates, and alkaline salts. Historian Gregory Cushman writes that “all told, from toPeru exported an estimated million metric tons of guano from its islands,” the great bulk of it destined for British fields.

Composition and properties Bird guano. Bird guano has high levels of nutrients like nitrate and ammonium. By mass, it is 8–21% nitrogen; the nitrogen content is about 80% uric acid, 10% protein, 7% ammonia, and % nitrate. Some of bird guano's most common chemical elements are phosphorus, calcium, and magnesium.

The recourse to Peruvian guano as a way of enhancing the productivity of the soil symbolized the rise of a new food pivot for industrial capitalism, while also constituting a temporary fix for the metabolic rift arising from the expropriation of the soil in capitalist agriculture.

The guano cycle begins when plant matter is eaten by insects, which are, in turn, eaten and digested by bats. The guano-boom increased economic activity in Peru considerably for a few decades until all million tons of guano deposits were exhausted. Research was initiated to find alternative sources of fertilizer.

The Atacama Desert, at that time part of Peru, was home to significant amounts of "Chilean saltpeter" (from sodium nitrate).

At the time. Metabolic rift is Karl Marx's notion of the "irreparable rift in the interdependent process of social metabolism", i.e. Marx's key conception of ecological crisis tendencies under theorized a rupture in the metabolic interaction between humanity and the rest of nature emanating from capitalist production and the growing division between town and country.
