Digest-it® is a slurry inoculant that provides a rich food source for microbes as well as dormant aerobic bacteria species that are able to feed on and break down the organic matter in the slurry and use the ammonia gas as a source of nitrogen to grow, thus turning it into microbial nitrogen.
The graph below shows the results of a 5-year grass silage dry matter (DM) yield comparison on untreated and Digest-it® treated dairy slurry. Digest-it® delivered on average a 20% increase in yield across 5 years.
This additional grass is worth €171 per hectare, representing an 11:1 return on investment after product costs have been deducted. This is delivering improved sustainability benefits and a significant financial benefit to farmers.
Application rate of Digest-it®
Digest-it® is best applied into fresh slurry. This is typically one week after cattle have been put in the shed.
