About the Solution:
Manure Master Plus–PA is a manure treatment blend that accelerates manure liquefaction and enhances its nutrient value. Manure Master Plus–PA provides technology to enhance liquid manure management including storage, handling, application, soil health, crop response and environmental safety. Manure Master Plus–PA also aims at helping enhance manure digestion and liquefaction, reduce barn and field odors, reduce top crusting and bottom solids, enhance soil health and crop performance, reduce pest pressure, and improve nutrient retention.
The predominant organisms in Manure Master Plus–PA manure technology are the purple sulfur group. This bacteria consortium is divided between two major categories: purple sulfur and purple non-sulfur organisms. The purple sulfur bacteria (which includes Thiobacillus sp.) utilizes hydrogen sulfide as an electron donor and oxidizes the sulfide to elemental sulfur, which is temporarily stored intracellularly and released as sulfate. Manure Master Plus PA technology incorporates a vast diversity of microorganisms to achieve an effective and natural biological solution to manure management problems.
