Dairies in new york, north carolina and Texas are using bacterial-based technology to reduce undesirable manure components like phosphorus. The Bion Nutrient Management System features naturally occurring bacteria that feed on the manure waste stream. The bacteria convert or stabilize most of the organic matter in manure into particulate that can be composted. Results show that more than 90 percent of the phosphorus is converted. And more than 80 percent of nitrogen is converted into solids and stabilized in particulate form. A substantial portion of the remaining nitrogen is released as nitrogen gas.
