Yes, biomass can be made into fertilizer.

Specifically, biomass includes renewable and recyclable organic

matter formed through photosynthesis. It therefore involves food

and food products; plants and plant residues and by-products; and

trees and forest products as well as fresh and saltwater algae and

plants. Additionally, it refers to nitrogen fixing bacteria and

phosphorus fixing bacteria and fungi. Any and all of the

above-mentioned biomasses serves as fertilizer.
