I think you are indicating towards Phosphates which are commonly used as fertilizer for agriculture. Phosphorous (P) has often been over-applied to agricultural fields. Over time, this has caused a buildup of P in soils to values well above those required for optimum crop yields. This is a concern because increased soil P levels can contribute to a greater risk of P leaching (drain away from soil to ground water) to the environment (Sims et al., 2000) and lead to ecological problems, such as eutrophication of surface waters (Sharpley et al., 2003).
So avoid using such chemicals to save environment.
Thanks,
GKD

Please is it proper, for those into pullets rearing, to leave their litter for up to three months before packing them.

This is very correct. A lot of downgraded broiler products are due to poor management of the litter.

Mr d k Mahal
This product is very helpful for farmers in Pakistan, as such product is not available here. How can it be available in Pakistan.

I want to reuse my old litter for my broiler small farm. Is that Liiteron is good enough to control and prevent ammonia, harmful pathogens and other insects problems?
