Crust build up and blockages in channels cause major handling problems for slurry and becomes a potential breeding site for flies and pathogenic bacteria. Keeping the slurry homogenous on a day-to-day basis is vital for efficient slurry handling, getting the maximum nutrient value into your soil, and controlling odour.
SlurryBugs® Crustbuster is a more powerful version of SlurryBugs® with a higher concentration of bacteria, enzymes and micronutrients. This makes it ideal for new customers using a stronger initial dose to rapidly boost the bacterial population in your slurry, or to tackle problematic crusts. Once the bacteria levels have been achieved or your crust has started to break down, we recommend switching back to the SlurryBugs® to maintain performance and prevent the crust returning.
Treating slurry with SlurryBugs® Crustbuster helps to:
Mobilise plant available nutrients including ammonium
Establish high bacterial activity in newly treated systems.
Break down tough, problematic crusts and liquify slurry
Improve the slurry’s fertiliser quality and value
Mobilise Nitrogen (N), Phosphorous (P) and Potassium (K)
Reduce bought-in fertiliser costs
Latest slurry fertiliser data revealed… just how many ££’s can SlurryBugs inoculants help you save?
New analysis found SlurryBugs® treated slurry had higher total nitrogen (+27%), phosphate (+45%) and potassium (+16%) levels compared to untreated slurry.
This difference represents an NPK slurry value of £2.25/tonne, equivalent to around 20% more economic value. Read more about the findings here.
