Organic way to improve value of slurry

LET micro-organisms, bio-organic catalysts and microbial growth stimulants from EcoGest decompose your slurry to make it easier to pump and more valuable, claims supplier Ritchey Tagg.

EcoGest is said to combat nitrogen loss and improve phosphate and potassium levels, increasing the fertiliser value. Ritchey Tag claims tests showed treated pig slurry contained 70% more nitrogen and 169% more phosphorus than untreated material.

A 10kg tub of EcoGest costs £280 (01765-689541).
