Purdue University Study Finds Manure Magic Significantly Impacts Odor and Hydrogen Sulfide from Swine Operations
Many of our customers have experienced the positive effects ManureMagic has on reducing odors and breaking up crusting in their pits first hand, but recently a Purdue University study has backed up ManureMagic’s effectiveness on decreasing odors and hydrogen sulfide gas produced from swine farms.
Purdue’s Dr. Albert Heber, from the Agriculture and Biological Engineering Department, tested ManureMagic’s ability to reduce hydrogen sulfide and odor from hog manure under controlled lab conditions. After the 42-day study completed, research showed ManureMagic, applied at normal rates, reduced hydrogen sulfide levels by 30% and odors by 40%. When elevating ManureMagic doses, they saw hydrogen sulfide reductions as much as 50%! This research also concluded that ManureMagic did not decrease the fertilizer value of manure.
“We are extremely pleased to have third-party research validation of the hydrogen sulfide and odor reduction benefits that ManureMagic provides our customers,” said Steve Ellis, Founder and Executive Vice President Sales of DryLet, LLC. “We have observed for several years that our customers have benefited in these areas, but having the validation from the Purdue University study confirms the results our end-users have found when using ManureMagic in their production facilities.” In 2015 ManureMagic also received praise from a Wall Street Journal article for the results producers were seeing in odor reduction and gas build up associated with animal production.
