SlurryForSoil™ is our advanced second generation slurry inoculant that builds on the success of our first, SlurryKing.
SlurryKing contained ten microbes, as well as a number of enzymes and was proven to be highly effective in independent trials both here in the UK and further afield. Research by ADAS, the Meat & Livestock Commission (MLC), Bayer Germany, SART (Spain) and Silsoe (UK), found that SlurryKing:
● increased total nitrogen by up to 33%
● increased ammonia-nitrogen by 57%
● reduced odour production by up to 55%
● solids reduced by 24%
Like SlurryForSoil™, SlurryKing was designed to break down slurry to making handling and application easier and quicker, as well as reduce odours. Today’s inoculant, SlurryForSoil™, goes further. It’s complex blend of 18 different bacteria and fungi has been selected with soil and plant health in mind.
"While there’s lots of data and stats behind the product, there’s one that matters to me – I needed 14% less nitrogen this year"
‘Sylgen’ is the name of the stream that runs through one of the company director’s farms.
We chose it because water, like soil and air, is an extremely valuable resource, essential to both nature and farming. It has a natural cycle that is representative of others – the nutrient cycles, for example – all are critical to our environment, and to sustainable food production.
‘Animal Health’ acknowledges the ultimate goal of livestock productivity and reflects our experience in the sector.
Sylgen Animal Health is owned by three directors, each is embedded in the farming sector and deeply understands the importance and challenges of producing affordable, sustainable, high-quality food.
