Many ponds function poorly.  They are anaerobic, overloaded IMG_-_Agriculture_-_Crust.png and cannot cope with incoming effluent. Symptoms associated  with these ponds are:
   
- Excessive sludge requiring constant de-sludging.
- Pond surface crusting and high level of suspended solids.
- Pump out volume is drastically reduced.
- Bad odours emanating from the pond and when spraying.
- Long delay from effluent spraying to animals feeding on the pasture.
- Degraded soil quality, reduced pasture growth and nutritional value.

Typical effluent ponds are dominated by      TABLE_Agri_IMP_Positive_effects.png
Anaerobic bacteria. IMPACT converts the pond into an aerobic state, dominated by aerobic bacteria. These bacteria digest effluent up to 12 times faster. Once digested, the effluent can increase the plant available nitrogen up to 300% & the solids and odour are substantially reduced.

IMPACT activation dose: The activation dose is a shock dose that enables the bacteria to quickly turn the pond aerobic and begin digesting the solids.

IMPACT maintenance dosing: This will be sent to you on a monthly basis and is designed to keep the pond active by replenishing the bacteria which degrade and change naturally over time due to many environmental factors including acid wash, biocides etc.

PRE-TREATMENT:  Anaerobic pond with excessive  IMG_-_IMP_Pond_dwg_1.pngsludge and or surface crusting and possibly bad odour.

PHASE 1: Initial dose is applied. The pond will turn  aerobic and become active. Within the first few weeks the crust may start to disappear or in some cases the pond may go straight to phase 2.

PHASE 2: A soft crust will start to   appear on the pond. This may become quite thick with white foam spurting up through it. This is because the bacteria are digesting the previously accumulated solids and creating bubbles causing them to rise.  The time this process takes depen d s  on    the amount of solids already present in  the pond and may last weeks, months or in extreme cases over a year.

Note: There are always more solids than expected.

PHASE 3: Once digestion of the backlog of accumulated solids is complete the pond will eventually stabilise and its surface will mostly clear. A small amount of surface scum/crust may appear from time to time.

The preferred setup is a 2 pond system with a large main pond flowing to a secondary pond where the effluent is pumped out. This allows the main pond to have a reasonable retention time as the bacteria need time and space to establish themselves properly for optimum solids digestion.  Suitability will be determined on a case by case basis. Depending on the situation more product may be required to properly digest the incoming effluent.

POND VOLUME: 1m3 or more of pond volume per cow is suitable in most cases. Smaller ponds may not be able to cope with the incoming effluent as they will not have the liquid volume to sustain a large enough colony of bacteria.  The pond flow through rate may also be too high, not allowing the bacteria to become properly established, reducing their digestion rate.  

PUMP OUTS: Regular emptying of more than a third of the pond will not allow the bacteria to become properly established. It is recommended that you pump the pond out little and often rather than pumping out large amounts. If it has to be fully pumped out make sure to do it before applying more product to avoid wastage. Depending on effluent inflow another activation dose may be required.     

FEED PAD:  Waste from a feed pad has a higher solid to liquid ratio and if added to the pond it’s possible the bacteria will struggle with the extra solids. A larger maintenance dose may be required in this case.

IMPACT can also be added to an effluent sump, then sprayed directly onto pasture. This will greatly improve effluent nutrient uptake by the pasture giving you more value from your effluent. As systems vary greatly, please contact us for details and recommendations. 

HEADING_Agri_IMP_Product_details.png

 

IMPACT is a liquid made up of organic compounds with over 100 carefully chosen bacterial and fungal species, complete with macro and micro nutrients and trace elements that contribute to the vigor and digestive power of this product.  Ingredients are naturally occurring in our environment. IMPACT is non-toxic & non-hazardous and is not harmful if accidentally ingested by humans and animals. However, we do not recommend this.

 CAUTION: IMPACT has a short shelf life. Use as soon as it is received. Keep out of direct sunlight.
If these precautions are not followed damage may occur to the product, lowering its effectiveness.

 

CHANGES TO YOUR EFFLUENT PROCESS MAY DISRUPT THE POND BALANCE.  DO NOT HESITATE TO CALL US IF ANY PROCESS CHANGES ARE MADE OR CHANGES IN THE POND ARE NOTICED. 

HEADING_Agri_IMP_Dosing.png

 

IMPACT is designed to be safe and easy to use. It is biodegradable and only monthly dosing is required.
 
You will automatically be sent your pre-determined dose on a monthly basis.  As soon as you receive the product pour all of it directly into the pond or onto the floor with the washdown water. If the pond has a crust make sure that the product gets underneath it.  

HEADING_Agri_IMP_Price.png

 

An initial treatment with a one off cost is required to activate the pond. This is followed by monthly
maintenance dosing with a small monthly cost.

NOTE:  If the maintenance dose is not continued on a regular monthly basis the pond will slow down and
eventually return to it’s pre-treatment state.  If this happens another activation dose will be required.
