About the Company

The Project aims to test the effects of the cattle slurry-enhancing product (‘SlurryCal’) on soil and plant nutrient availability and on general soil health indicators. It is very important that industry develops products, which benefit both end-users (i.e. farmers) and the environment. "SlurryCal" is a dual purpose cubicle hygiene and slurry enhancing product and is the first product of its kind to the market. This product can improve hygienic conditions of cubicle beddings as well as reduce gas emissions (e.g. nitrous oxide) from slurry tanks. The Project will test the effects of ‘SlurryCal’ on soil and plant health under common farming management practices by using a rigorous scientific method and allow us to further develop the product to meet client needs.
