Significant profit losses can occur from ammonia-caused performance decline, even at low levels. Learn how to avoid profit loss through ammonia management.
Effects of PLT on Ammonia and Broiler Performance
In a study that compared PLT with two other litter amendments, only PLT-treated houses showed significantly less ammonia. Learn more about the performance of PLT as it relates to condemnations, weight and other factors.
Even though most poultry producers have specific brooding management programs, many flocks are affected by respiratory problems that can be directly attributed to a failure to follow those guidelines. Learn about three basic steps to minimize disease and performance loss.
It's All About Relative Humidity: Link Between Brooding, Ventilation and Litter Quality
While pathogens–viral, protozoal and otherwise—can be responsible for a specific disease condition we encounter, quite often it is the husbandry within the house that is the root of the problem.
It’s Not Your Grandma’s Litter Anymore: Evolution of Litter since the 1990s
In the last 20 years, things have changed: different housing, different chickens, different feed programs. So why haven’t many of our litter amendment programs kept pace with the increases in ammonia load in the litter?
Since the launch of PLT in 1994, these are the questions that are asked the most.

Effects of Sodium Bisulfate on Alcohol, Amine, and Ammonia Emissions from Dairy Slurry
Sodium bisulfate (SBS), commonly used in the dairy industry to reduce bacterial counts in bedding and ammonia emissions, was shown to be effective in the mitigation of ammonia and alcohol emissions from fresh dairy slurry as well as other areas.
Acidifier Dosage Impacts on Ammonia Concentrations
Acidifying amendments have been shown to be effective in reducing ammonia emissions from poultry operations. This study set out to evaluate what levels of PLT were needed to maintain ammonia levels at or below 25 ppm during the grow-out period.
Ammonia During Brooding Affects Performance
In this study, broilers were exposed to various levels of ammonia until 28 days. The ammonia was shown to adversely affect weight gains, feed conversion and mortality during brooding.
Ammonia in Poultry Houses
Extensive research shows the detrimental effects of ammonia in poultry houses, including but no limited to irritation to the eyes and respiratory tract, decreased weight, breast blisters and more.
Birds that are sufficiently afflicted with ascites do not thrive. However, PLT litter acidifier has a significant effect on ascites.
