An effective effluent pond treatment for mid to long term retention times
- POOR QUALITY EFFLUENT
- NEGATIVE EFFECTS ON
Many ponds function poorly. They are anaerobic, overloaded and cannot cope with incoming effluent.
Why you should care
Excessive sludge requires constant, costly de-sludging.
The Pond can crust over, with a high level of suspended solids, drastically reducing pump out volume.
Bad odours emanating from the pond and when spraying.
Long delay before animals can feed on sprayed pasture.
Degraded soil quality, resulting in reduced pasture growth and nutritional value.
Reduce sludge, crust & odour
Once a month dosing
Just pour into pond
Reduce chance of pond
Improve nutrient availability
in effluent sprayed pasture.
Animals can feed on the pasture days after spraying.
Based on a herd size of around 300 cows.
IMPACT CAN SAVE
Virtually eliminate pond dig outs and cleaning, and improve effluent sprayed pasture nutrient value.
* Prices indicated are based on a herd size of 300 cows. Quantity required and cost will vary depending on factors such as local environment, herd size and pond inputs. The monthly dose starts a month after the activation dose.
WHAT FARMERS ARE SAYING
Odour is no longer
a problem and even the
cows notice the difference.

...it took a couple of months
but the crust and stench
were both gone.
...the cows start eating pasture within two or three days [After spraying with Impact-dosed effluent]
