MicroZyme - Slurry treatment
MicroZyme is an advanced biological slurry treatment for the use in the reduction of solids, odour control and supports the retention of valuable nitrogen in stored liquid manure. Microzyme R is specifically formulated for ruminant slurry whilst Microzyme S, for swine.
In any dairy farming operation the production of milk is inevitably accompanied by the production of animal waste most of which ends up in the manure pit. The storage and management of this waste is an important part of the farming operation not just for environmental and legislation reasons. This material is a good source of fertiliser because of its high content of nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium.
Our product development strategy was to design a product that targeted the three main areas that represent the fundamental problems associated with stored liquid manure as many of the other issues stem from these three criteria, namely:
- Ammonia production
- Solids accummulation
- Sediment and crusting minimised - easier storage, mixing, emptying and thus usage of this valuable by-product, faster pump outs and easier injection.
- Enviromental benefits - supports reducing harmful and smelly emissions. Reduction in surface run off with less fibrous residue on plan leaves. Easier to comply with the authorities and nicer for the neighbours.
- Preserved fertilizer value - reducing bought in fertilizer need and improving plant uptake allowing slurry to be applied to multi-cut systems. Nutritive quality from start to finish.
