Digest-It®

Enhancing the nutritive value of slurry

What is Digest-It®?

Digest-It® is a liquid biological composting agent, containing aerobic bacteria, enzymes and nutrients, which is used to aerobically compost slurry. By doing so, Digest-It® has been proven to improve the fertiliser nutrient value of slurry, resulting in higher DM yields and improved cost-effectivness on farm.

Digest-It® is approved for organic use.

The Benefits of Digest-It® include:

  • Reduce energy required to agitate tank,
  • Increase nutrient availability and value of slurry,
  • Grow more grass
  • Break down crusts and solids in tank,
  • Reduce odour,
  • Approved for organic use.

Application rate of Digest-It®:

  • 1 litre/22m³ slurry
    OR
  • 20 litres/100,000 gallons of slurry
    OR
  • 12.5 litres/100 cows/month
