Resuscitates Inactive Lagoons
BioKix Enhanced with Micronutrients & Biostimulants Lagoon Waste Treatment treats waste lagoons that may not have sufficient organic nutrients to allow the bacillus to work and multiply as fast as it would if those nutrients were more abundant. Manure lagoons, unlike industrial lagoons, typically are loaded with organic nutrients and do not need the additives contained in this product. However, dairies that have stagnant crust filled lagoons would benefit from the use of this product for the first 6 months before switching over to the standard Dairy Lagoon 6 strain product. It resuscitates inactive lagoons.
Gas Reduction Through Bio-augmentation
Dairy manure lagoons are inherently anaerobic (lack oxygen). The bacteria in raw manure needs oxygen to decompose manure waste and whatever degradation occurs will occur under septic conditions which convert hydrogen and sulfur to form hydrogen sulfide and transform carbon into methane. The right strains of bacillus do not need oxygen to decompose waste quickly and they feast on organics like sulfur and carbon. By adding micro-nutrients, the bacillus works faster.
Eliminate Lagoon Shrinkage Through Bio-augmentation
Waste will only partially decompose on its own. What does not decompose either floats and forms a solid crust or sinks to the bottom and stops decomposing. Partially decomposed waste will also stick to the sides of lagoons. Deep accumulations of sludge on the lagoon floors and sides require frequent removal by tractors or the lagoon will become too small to hold the amount of waste coming in. Those removed solids have to be stored elsewhere. Bio-augmented lagoons can be fully pumped out and the liquid content used to irrigate and fertilize crops.
