Lagoons

Some lagoons are in pretty good condition and just need a maintenance dose of Wt1000™. These would have a liquid surface and often reflect a purple color on the surface. These lagoons smell like very rich soil and do not emit foul odors. Other lagoons may need a more aggressive treatment plan (see bottom chart). These application rates can be used for manure pits, which are often found in hog barns, as well.

Aggressive plan for a lagoon: If the lagoon has a crust and/or a large volume of sludge, continue application until some level of clarity is seen. It would be wise to measure sludge levels to set a point of comfort level as to when to decrease application rates to a maintenance dose.
