Safely Control Ammonia Mid-Flock

By febrero 11, 2021Noticias, PLT

The Scenario

Birds are 3-4 days old and ammonia has spiked to 40 PPM+.

PLT® is the only litter amendment that can be safely applied on top of birds anytime throughout the grow-out cycle to eliminate ammonia.

Unlike alum-based products that are hazardous and corrosive, PLT® is safe for birds, workers and the environment.
