SlurryBugs® is a bacterial slurry additive which breaks down solid matter and crusts to produce a more homogenous and nutrient rich fertiliser.

Treating slurry with the SlurryBugs® range helps to:

• Break down solid matter to liquify slurry
• Make slurry easier to handle, saving time and fuel
• Mobilise N, P, K and dissolved Carbon (C) trapped in solids
• Improve slurry fertiliser value
• Improve soil condition once spread (C:N ratio)
• Reduce bought-in fertiliser

Are you maximising your slurry’s full potential?  

New analysis has 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.

Product Range

SlurryBugs ® adds non-pathogenic bacteria and enzymes to slurry to drive the breakdown of crusts and solid matter. The enzymes start the initial breakdown of solid matter, whilst the bacteria multiply in the slurry with the help of booster micronutrients. The beneficial bacteria also secrete enzymes to further break down solid matter, releasing N, P, K and Carbon from the solid material. This means SlurryBugs® creates a more homogenous slurry with an improved NPK value, which can reduce your bought-in fertiliser costs.

A highly concentrated SlurryBugs® which quickly establishes working populations of bacteria in new systems, or tackles crust-prone slurries.

A powerful formulation of bacteria and extra concentrated enzymes which rapidly breaks down blockages and keeps even the most problematic of slurry systems flowing.

SlurryBugs® treatment works best with little and often dosing. The SlurryBugs® AUTO-SYSTEM is a simple automated system which dispenses daily treatments from ready-to-use drums through a pre-set pump.

How to apply

SlurryBugs ® should be mixed in a large bucket of warm water and left for 20 minutes prior to application to slurry. SlurryBugs® must always be applied to the liquid slurry and not the crust. Dosing can take place in collection tanks, channels and slats or at the point where fresh slurry is emptied into lagoons or stores. For best results, treatment needs to take place regularly, to keep the bacterial populations high.
